Discard of waste plastic is considered as a major problem in India. It consists of mainly lower density polyethylene Particles. Burning of these waste Particles causes change in environmental conditions and create air pollution. Laboratory studies were conducted which suggest that waste plastic can be considered in the binding property for the mix in Bitumen. Which Increases the properties of bituminous mix provides the solution for discarding it in a useful way. Plastic mix Flexible Pavement mainly use polyethylene carry bags, disposed plastic cups and bottles that are collected from garbage dumps as an important ingredient of the construction material. When mixed with hot bitumen, plastics melt to form a coat over the aggregate and this mixture is laid on the road surface like a normal tar road, this method is being considered as a successful solution. Aim of this Report is to study the use of plastic waste in Flexible pavement construction. In this report We performed various laboratory test like Elongation and flakiness index test, Impact Value of aggregate, softening point of the bituminous mix, and Marshall Stability Test to determine effect of plastic waste with bituminous mix. Large amount of polyethylene waste is generated in India, for which Plastic treating capacity is low. This project aims the effect of use of plastic waste in various percentages on the Marshall Stability Value so as to use maximize amount of Disposed plastic waste in construction of bituminous Flexible pavement. So, a greater number of methodical and advantageous way of disposal of plastic waste can be encouraged.
