This report presents the findings of a study entitled “Enhancing the Use of Locally Made, Low Cost Equipment for the Road Sector” undertaken in three countries in South East Asia: Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos.
The project has four main modules. This report is concerned with three of them: (i) the survey module (which focuses on the identification of necessary equipment, the assessment of their demand and supply and the estimation of their performance and costs); (ii) the towed grader module (which focuses on towed graders and considers their suitability and cost effectiveness compared to other grader types); and (iii) the mobile small-scale stone crusher module (examines the suitability of mobile crushers in the production of quality and economical crushed aggregate). The study findings are drawn mainly from the evidence generated through interviews with small-scale contractors in Cambodia and Vietnam and with Key Informants in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.
