Abstract
Road infrastructure projects are vital for socio-economic development, yet delays in their implementation are common, leading to significant costs and disruptions. This study employs the Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) method to analyze delayed road projects, aiming to identify key factors contributing to delays and propose effective mitigation strategies. The research begins by identifying a set of critical parameters including delay causes, stakeholder satisfaction, cost overruns, quality of construction, environmental and social impacts, time management, risk management, and public perception. Data pertaining to these parameters are collected through surveys, interviews, and project documentation for selected delayed road projects. Using the TOPSIS method, the collected data are processed to rank the delayed road projects based on their performance against the identified parameters. The method enables the identification of projects that deviate the most from the ideal solution and those that exhibit relatively better performance in mitigating delays. Through a comparative analysis of the ranked projects, Moreover, the study highlights best practices and lessons learned from projects with minimal delays. The findings of this research provide valuable insights for policymakers, project managers, and stakeholders involved in road infrastructure development. By understanding the root causes of delays and implementing targeted interventions, future road projects can be executed more efficiently, ensuring timely completion and optimal utilization of resources.
