Abstract

In 2004, Aceh province was devastated by the earthquake and tsunami. Within the four-year reconstruction period between 2005 and 2009, more than 3600 km of roads were rehabilitated and reconstructed. The ownerships of the reconstructed road assets were transferred back to the Local Governments for the operational and maintenance needs. Hence, the responsibility to maintain most of the road sections are now held by the Local Governments.
This paper highlights the problems and dilemmas identified in enforcing the traffic loading control as part of the road maintenance efforts. The data was collected from the literature, documents and through semi-structured interviews conducted with 28 respondents from the case study districts in Aceh province. The finding suggest that conflicting institutional arrangement and policies, socioeconomic consideration and corruption have been the major constraints to effective traffic control enforcement efforts.
