Roads and highway sector projects in India are affected with enormous delays. Over the last decade, as a result of paradigm shift in the volume and capacity of the road construction sector, it is very important to systematically analyze the factors of delays and to build up a concise understanding amongst the roads and highways professionals. Adopting a comprehensive project stakeholders analysis namely client, consultant and contractor, the research identified the important factors affecting the delays in Indian roads and highway construction industry and then establishing the association between factors to develop the prediction models to assess the impact of these delay factors. A questionnaire survey and personal interviews methodology was used for this research. Most critical variables causing construction delay were analyzed using factor analysis. These results will significantly contribute in controlling the time overruns in Indian road construction industry. This project delays forms a challenge for developing countries like India, where exponential costs result from difficulty in recognizing and mitigating the project delay factors. This research focuses on prominent factors causing delays in road construction industry, and accordingly proposes a suggestive framework to design a construction project in an efficient manner and assisting mitigating of delays.
