Cost Optimization of Rural Roads by using Waste Materials


Roads are major source of transportation throughout the world. In India about 69% Population live in rural area. It is estimated that out of total road constructed in India about 60% is rural road. Roads are key point for rural development. Cost of per kilometer construction of rural road (Rigid Pavement) is more than 55 Lakh (excluding leveling, cutting and filling). Unit cost of Road construction can be reduced by using different waste material as partial replacement of cement and aggregates. In the present study attempt is made to explore the possibility of reduction of cost of rural road by using Fly ash as partial replacement of cement and construction waste as partial replacement of aggregate.
