The National Development Plan, launched in November 1999, proposed investment of €5.6 billion on national road improvements during the period 2000 - 2006. By 2002, the estimated cost of the planned works had had risen to almost €16 billion. The report set out to examine the causes of the escalation in the cost of the planned works and review the estimation process which underpinned the costing of the programme. In addition, the report examines the arrangements in place for the procurement of national road improvement projects and reviews key aspects of the overall management of the roads improvement programme.
