Time, cost and quality have their proven importance as the
prime measures for project success. However, the history of
the construction industry worldwide is full of projects that were
completed with significant time and cost overruns. This study is
conducted to investigate the occurrence frequency of time overrun causes in road construction projects in the West Bank in
Palestine from contractors’ viewpoint through a questionnaire
survey. The field survey included 34 contractors. 52 factors
affecting time overrun were identified during the research. The
survey concluded that the top ten frequent factors are: segmentation of the West Bank and limited movement between areas,
political situation, progress payments delay by owner, lack of
equipment efficiency, difficulties in financing project by contractor, personal conflicts among labors, poor communication
by consultant with other construction parties, conflict between
contractor and other parties, award project to lowest bid price,
unreasonable project time frame by the owner.
