Abstract
The disposal of the waste plastic is one of the main issue to the environment which causes pollution and global warming. This plastic waste can be used with the bituminous mix. It increases the strength and properties of the pavement. This process will simultaneously help to dispose plastic waste and reduce potholes and increase life of pavement. Poly-ethylene, poly-styrene and poly-propylene are the types of plastic which are shredded, coated on the aggregate and mixed with hot bitumen which is used for filling the potholes and also for road construction. It will increase the life span of the pavement. Also, a smoke absorbing material Titanium Dioxide is used which absorbs the smoke emitted from the vehicles. This method of pavement construction is eco-friendly as well as economical.
