Permeable paving is a range of sustainable materials and techniques for permeable pavements with a base and sub base that allow the movement of storm water through the surface. In addition to reducing runoff, this effectively traps suspended solids and filters pollutants from the water. Examples include roads, paths that are subject to light vehicular traffic, such as car/parking lots, cycle paths, service or emergency access lanes, roads and residential sidewalks and driveways.
The goal is to control storm water at the source, reduce runoff and improve water quality by filtering pollutants in the substrata layers and increase subsurface water level.
Our project is based on design of permeable pavement by using pavement block techniques and pervious concrete. We have used pavement block by using crumb rubber which is a waste material and requires lots of space for its disposal at the same time the natural materials like aggregate and sand are saved because of waste rubber used in manufacturing of paving blocks whereas pervious concrete is made using Portland cement, fly ash and course aggregate. Thus the road which is designed is eco-friendly as it harvest’s the water and solves the problem of disposal waste rubber at the same time preserves the quarries.
The study is based on a laboratory model which proves the working of paving system
