In addition, observations had been made to the road and LRT construction sites to oversee the physical conditions. The study has identified weak integration between the road and railway offices, unable to prepare integrated short-term and long-term plan of road and LRT, unable to prepare thoroughly studied and acceptable master plan of road and LRT network, lack of vision based on today’s infrastructural implementation, absence of experiences and inadequacies in trained professionals related to the problem.
