Road & structure condition survey
Engineering survey consisting of traverse survey, topographic survey, and cross section levelling
Traffic & axle load survey and traffic forecast
Road roughness survey
Benkelman beam deflection study
Hydrological investigations & study
Geotechnical & material investigations
Prepared preliminary design & preliminary cost estimates
Prepared economic feasibility which includes the derivation of Benefit Cost Ratio (BCR), Internal Rate of Return (IRR), Net Present Value (NPV) and ratio of project cost for the first year benefits of the project to demonstrate the economic and technical feasibility, including testing the results on HDM model
Detailed engineering design of overlay & other improvement works, including bridges & structures
Tender documents & cost estimates
Detailed Construction Supervision Services
Detailed construction supervision of (70 km) road, including bridges/culverts
