SubjectUtility cuts
AbstractPoor performance of reinstated cuts is one of the major utility issues. A multitude of studies has been carried out since 1950 to understand the effect of cuts on road life expectancy and serviceability and to develop guidelines for reinstatement and management. The majority of these studies were either limited to a certain region and did not address all the factors involved or were oriented to the interest of a particular party. This made the outcome of these studies and its application limited to a certain area and non-transferable to others. A proposal to concentrate on solving the problem in a consortium framework, for the benefit of all concerned parties and the public, is presented. Four interacting research components are proposed to solve the issues related to construction practices, which in turn will ease the solution of issues related to planning and management.
