Abstract: The population growth, consumerism, industrialization and technology development have led to the problem of uncontrollable accumulation of plastic waste. It is great importance that waste plastic should be disposed properly in Rural as well as in urban areas. It is proved that Waste plastic is used in the bituminous mixes concrete. As, we know that Bituminous concrete is most widely used all over the world for the construction of the flexible pavement and other various projects like airport, parking lots, etc. BC generally consist of Bitumen or Asphalt which are to be mixed together in the proper proportion and after that it will be laid down in layers and compacted properly. With the increase in traffic & variation in daily or seasonal temperature, there is a need of some alternative for modifying the pavement quality which gives us both the aspect i.e economy as well as strength. So, for this the waste plastic is added in order to improve the characteristics of BC and also it is good from environmental point of view. Waste Rubber is also a serious issue for environment. So, different types of plastic i.e, HDPE (3-9%), LDPE (3-9%) and Chloroprene Rubber (3-9%) is shredded and added with different percentages in the bituminous concrete mixes. This paper present a research conducted on BC with HDPE, LDPE and chloroprene rubber individually or in combinations. Chloroprene rubber has not been used so far thus create a scope of finding new thing. Then after that Marshall Test is to be conducted for flow and stability with all void analysis on all samples.
