WB funded Road Sector Assistance Project - Construction Supervision and Contract Administration of National Roads

The GOSL used a part of the proceeds of a loan received from the World Bank for payments towards the construction of roads under the Road Sector Assistance Project. A part of the loan proceeds were used for payment for consulting services for contract management and construction supervision. The objective was to ensure that high quality construction is achieved in time within the budget and that all the work was carried out in complete compliance with the approved engineering designs, technical specifications, agreed work schedule and within the terms and conditions of all other contract documents and sound engineering practices. The project involved the rehabilitation and resurfacing of approximately 620 km of national Class A and B roads. The scope of the work involved patching and/or removal where required of existing bituminous layers, placement of asphalt concrete regulating course and asphalt concrete overlay. The work also included marginal / minimum widening at some locations, construction of up to 1.5 meter wide hard shoulders, repair and extension of culverts and bridges, improvements to storm water drainage, construction of bus bays within the existing right of way, minor junction improvements, road marking and traffic signs. This project was implemented under 12 contracts. There was one Resident Engineer in charge of each contract package except for contract packages CP03, Bandarawela – Hali – Ela and CP -04 Bandarawela – Welimada which came under the responsibility of one Resident Engineer. The project roads were located in almost all the provinces except for the Northern Province
