Abstract: The construction sector is one of the important sources of growth and development of the national economy. However, entirely projects background delays in construction work and therefore raise its time and money. Problem in structure/construction work is studied one of the important obstacles in the work and it has a very large issue in terms of time, money, and quality. This survey is done to find the time achievement of the road development project to identify the causes of delays and related factors according to the contractor with the help of the Questionnaire Survey which was taken with the help of Google Forms. As per the research, there are a total of 32 factors affecting the delay/ failure of the road. As per the survey accidents during construction, an increase in material price, change in cost, and delay in time are the top factors which mostly affect the road failure. These factors were analyzed with the help of the Severity Index Method and mathematically with the help of Excel and Google Forms and then the result was calculated.
Keywords: Delay, Management, Severity Index, Road Failure, Quality.
