The Roadway projects is faced with the significant problems of high cost of project delivery, bad financial performance and inability to deliver value to customers on time. As a result, the projects has been criticized extensively for poor performance and inefficient productivity. “The unnecessary work which incorrectly done for the first time is know as rework”.
