Despite the introduction of road planning models (such as the World Bank’s Highway Development and Management Model, HDM-4) there is still considerable uncertainty about the validity of using existing vehicle operating cost models in different countries and the appropriate procedures for estimating passenger values of time. In order to address these issues three studies were undertaken covering speeds and fuel consumption, values of time and vehicle maintenance costs. Most of the field work was undertaken during 1996 and 1997.The research was carried out by the Institute of Road Engineering in Bandung in co-operation with the Transport Research Laboratory of the UK. The work programme was funded by the World Bank, the Department for International Development, UK and the Government of Indonesia.
