Abstract: The trend of reclaimed aggregate from old roads and concrete debris from various demolition sources getting popular day by day. In this study, the reclaimed aggregates and crushed concrete debris are used for modification of bitumen and the experimental programme is organized in order to check the engineering properties of reclaimed aggregates and concrete debris from various demolition sources. The main motive of the study is to replace the some amount of percentage of reclaimed aggregates as coarse aggregates with natural aggregates and concrete debris as fine aggregates from 5% to 30% and then by performing several tests related to aggregates such as crushing test, impact test, abrasion test, flankiness and elongation test, specific gravity test and related to bitumen such as penetration test, softening point, ductility test. Specific gravity test. The main scope of this study is to reduce the material cost which affects the final yield of project and to find field performance etc. Afterwards the results is examined and compared with the unmodified sample. The result is discussed for improving the performance of sub grade and sub base layers in the roadways.
