The main challenge encountered during this Project was to maintain a contented Community Relation throughout the Project Period in accordance to Owner’s Specification. This includes provision of Community Relation Management Plan, CR resources and all other relevant activities. Since the work was performed along the Highway route, a limited working area was applied. Furthermore, the work has to be performed within the scheduled timeline set while managing the unforeseen traffic events along the route. The route was consisted of various mountainous and rocky terrains, hence underground blasting was required from time to time. It was a challenge for us to perform Open Cut Work through rock terrain area and dense sand ground. Moreover, Boring work were also performed though layers of rock limestone.
