In the local public works execution process, the possibility of occurrence of events that have a negative impact on residents and the cost of dealing with them is called "resident risk." In recent years, efforts have been made to amend laws and develop guidelines related to consensus building in social infrastructure development, but most of these are aimed at new construction or improvement of social infrastructure that has a large scale of project or scope of impact; Applying it to maintenance and repair work, etc. is not necessarily appropriate from the perspective of sharing information and building consensus regarding resident risks. Resident risks not only threaten the safety and security of residents' lives, but also for contractors and clients, where dissatisfaction with explanations and responses regarding risk sharing can lead to emotional conflicts, which can lead to opposition movements and criticism of the administration. Fear and other threats can affect construction execution, and appropriate management of these threats is an urgent issue. The purpose of this research is to propose a method for managing residents' risk in the construction execution process. We conducted a case study of bridge repair work carried out in Oita Prefecture, and clarified the current status of resident risk management and consensus building processes. In addition, we considered issues with bidding and contract systems related to resident risk sharing, and attempted to propose practical methods to support consensus building through appropriate resident risk management.
