Now a days because of good infrastructure and their good facilities in roadway structures, the demand of aggregate is increased and because of limited aggregate the Recycling of Asphalt Pavement is the best option to give good result with benefits. While a number of factors drive the use of Recycling asphalt pavements, the primary factors are economic savings and environmental benefits. Aggregates form a bulk of the material required for bituminous concrete pavements. Aggregate being a natural material is being fast consumed and is causing a shortage of resources required for rapid infrastructure development. Also on the other side with the new trends in construction industry there is a generation of solid waste in the form of demolished structures. Today, science and technology has a responsibility of innovating new trends which are both economical and eco-friendly. Recycling reduces the amount of construction debris going into landfills. With the help of recycling asphalt it uses the natural resources and sustains the asphalt pavement. Old demolished concrete structures can be recycled to obtain recycled aggregate (RA). This can be used along with the natural aggregates effectively in various infrastructure need so that we attain a balance between demand and supply of construction material thereby reducing the impact on nature. The present investigation aims in the strength variation of bituminous concrete surface course in which recycled aggregates are used in partial or full replacement of natural aggregates.
