In this present era the biggest problem which is to be dealt with is non – biodegradable waste i.e polythene. This non bio – degradable waste can enhance and stabilize the properties of bitumen when mixed in optimum proportions. In this study tensile strength, marshall's stability value and ductility of bitumen by adding different proportions of HDPE (high density polythene) in order to find the optimum proportion of HDPE. Also zycotherm (hydrated aluminium silicate) is added in order to reduce the temperature of the mix which in turn reduces the carbon emission .In this study four specimen's are prepared named 1, 2, 3 and 4 having HDPE percentages of 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively. All the specimen are tested in Marshall's stability test, penetration test and ductility test. Results show that the specimen 3 with HDPE percentage 4 has highest Marshall Stability value. So, by the use of plastic waste in the bitumen road construction we can resolve the problem of non – biodegradable waste in feasible manner.
