ADB Project looking for a Highway Maintenance Planner/Engineer-Individual

May 13, 2015

Roads play a vital role in the economy and country integration of Timor-Leste. Roads are the primary mode of transport, carrying about 90% of passengers, and 70% of freight. The core network comprises of 1,426 km of national roads, and 869 km of district roads. The national road network, linking the 13 national districts, comprises northern and southern coastal roads; and five roads traversing north-south, connecting the two coastal roads. The district roads link secondary population centers to the national roads. The core network is supplemented by 716 km of urban roads, most of which are in Dili.

Rural roads, about 3,000 km in length, provide access to villages and the more remote areas. Recent surveys indicate that almost the entire core road network is in an un-maintainable condition. Only about 8% of the core road network was assessed to be in fair condition, about 22% in poor condition, and about 70% in very poor condition. The Government of Timor-Leste is embarking on an ambitious upgrading program through which the majority of the national road network is expected to be reconstructed to improved standards.

Currently, road maintenance is largely ad-hoc or undertaken in response to emergencies (land slips, washouts and the like). Preventive maintenance is not systematically undertaken. Protection of existing and newly created assets through systematic maintenance practices and procedures is a high priority, which will require both planning and capacity development for effective implementation.
