By the carrying out of these investigations and studies the technical , economic environmental and social feasibility of the proleci road upgrading is determined Though the decision to proceed to detailed design stage of the project road has already been taken the results of economic assessment will determine the optimum timing of construction and the phasing of development should it be shown that any section of the road does not justify the construction of a 4 - lane highway at the present time . The work undertaken by the Consultant during the Feasibility Study for this project road together with its findings and recommendations , has attempted to provide an objective and unbiased dele mination of the overall feasibility of the project road upgrading.
