Risk management in the economic design and construction of road cuttings in New Zealand


, : Risk management in the economic design and construction of road cuttings in New Zealand. Proceedings of Technical Groups - Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand 24(1G)(Pages 197-202

Road projects involve uncertainties as to the ground conditions and the expected performance of cut slopes. These uncertainties are pronounced due to the steep terrain and highly fractured, geologically young rocks predominant in many parts of New Zealand. Site investigations can be difficult and costly due to access restrictions. Taking a global approach to site investigations, design and construction of road cuttings will help optimise total costs and manage the risks. The limited funds available for road construction and the low volumes of traffic on rural roads, make effective management of risks important for road development in New Zealand.

The prevalence of such markers has never been examined in a population of Po...
