Falling behind schedule and excessively longer work term are not uncommon either in highway construction or improvement projects in the Taiwan area. In reviewing the final account of the general budgets of the Central Government, Ministry of Audit has always identified many issues that affect the people’s satisfaction on the administration of the government including absence of a well-though planning; frustrated pushing forward the project due to failure of coordination from supportive agencies in keeping positive and close contact; budget preparation not coping with the practical project progress, slow administrative operation procedure, delayed contracting, and excessively long work term. This study summarizes factors affecting the progress of carrying out highway projects and groups those factors under two categories, namely, the owner and the contractor, followed with detailed analysis of causes to pinpoint issues that contribute to the affected project progress including poor design, deferred administrative operation, delay in land acquisition, earthwork problems, force de majeure, hazards, contractor factors, supports required and changed demands. Finally, conclusions and recommendations are made after having interviews with personnel concerned by survey of questionnaires.
