During construction of roads on soft soils a certain bearing capacity of the sub base is required to prevent unnecessary differential settlements of the road structure. For subsoil with insufficient bearing capacity and, stabilization is necessary. The bearing capacity can be increased by excavation of the soft material, chemical stabilization by using chalk or by using geosynthetics. In Gujarat, Bhavnagar proposed approach road between creek kalatalav sanesh to Bhavnagar, soil of this site is black cotton soil and generally CBR of black cotton soil is less than 2%. For developing a good and durable road network in black cotton soil areas, the nature of soils shall be properly understood. In the present paper, reasons for poor condition of roads in B.C soils and measures to be taken for construction and improvement of roads on BC soils are presented.
