Abstract
Plastic is one of the most integral component of solid waste which is spreading across the world causing so much damage and is been disposed without any treatment causing huge threat to the mother land as well as people all across the world. The increase in plastic is also affecting the world’s smallest creature, such as plankton. When these creatures are poisoned by plastic ingestion, this will cause trouble for the larger animals that depend on them for food. Apart from this plastic waste is increasing pollution in many ways. Groundwater pollution, land pollution, air pollution is some of the pollutions that are deteriorating the environment. In order to overcome all this problem’s use of plastic as a construction material in the bituminous roads helps us to reduce the plastic waste across the globe with some percentage. This technique will allow the pavements to resist higher temperature through minimizing the formation of cracks. Plastic roads will prove to be a boon for India’s hot and humid climate, where temperatures often exceed 50°C and heavy rains can cause serious damage, resulting big potholes. It is said that 33,400km road are been construction by using plastic all across India. This initiative taken up by all the states is helping to reduce the plastic waste in their respective area and state. In the current situation, the increasing traffic volume of business vehicles and the significant difference between daily and cyclical weather temperature put us in an exceedingly critical situation to consider some substitute for the spontaneity of the pavement characteristics and quality by applying some necessary alternatives which shall satisfy both the strength as well as construction cost aspects. In this paper, the main objective is to highlight the different type of processes by which the plastic road can be laid and by considering one of the process a patch of plastic road is been laid in our institute. Apart from that this paper also highlight the impact of using plastic with bitumen and the results that are obtained by performing various test on both the road which is been carried out in the laboratory. The normal bitumen and plastic bitumen sample are compared with each other on the basis of test values.

Key words: Plastic, Pavement, Bitumen, Environmental crisis, Plastic roads, laboratory study, Processes.
