Abstract
Flexible pavements with bituminous are widely used in India. Flexible pavements are often subjected to earlier development of failure due to high traffic intensity, over loading of trucks, significant variations in daily and seasonal temperature. The use of the innovative technology not only strengthen the road construction but also increase the road life as well as will help to improve the environment. In this project, study on the methodology of using plastic waste and Sodium lignosulphonate in bituminous mix. Different percentages of bitumen, plastic and Sodium lignosulphonate have been taken in each sample of bituminous mix and conducted various tests. The present study has been suggested the optimum percentage of bitumen that can be replaced by 19% of plastic waste and 10% of Sodium lignosulphonate gives the reduction of cost of construction, makes flexible pavements eco-friendly and increases the life time of the pavements
