Abstract

Over the past two decades traffic volume and percentage of heavy trucks have enhanced, demanding stronger and long lasting paved surface. In order to enhance the anticipated design life of the pavement, there is a need to investigate the application of new and innovative material for extending the life of paved surface. The regular growth of high traffic intensity in terms of commercial vehicles, and considerable variation in seasonal and day-to-day temperature needs better road qualities. Some modification in the quality of the binder is demanded. This work represents a research conducted to study the characteristics of Bituminous Mix equipped with Polymer - Bitumen collection to be utilized in structure of flexible pavements for efficient use in road construction industry which will result in modified road paved surfaces and also harmless removal of waste plastic in a specific urban roads.
