Author(s): Narender Taneja, Naval Kishore, Manoj Siwach and Deepak Kaushik

Abstract: Plastic waste is one of the resources of which a major part of solid waste that is available in bulk and is disposed of without properly treating it. There has been an epidemic growth in the plastic waste disposal by the municipality especially in urban areas that decline the beauty of the land. Plastic is found to be one of the most effectively unite bitumen mixes used in the pavements. The main objective to use of waste plastic is to reduce plastic waste and improve the durability and sustainability of road infrastructure. It can also make the roads more resistant to wear and tear. In this paper it is recommended/presented to use the plastic waste materials in the road construction. 6% plastic waste with 60/70 grade of bitumen modification showed maximum stability in Marshall Stability test which represent high loading capacity of road due to increased brittleness of the road.
