Abstract: The development of population, quick urbanization and more development of structures and buildings has brought about the decrease of good quality land. To improve the accessibility of good quality land, strength and compaction properties of land should be improved. The fundamental goal of this examination is to explore the utilization of fly ash, lime sludge and polypropylene fiber in Geotech highway application and to assess their impact on quality and compaction of soil, utilized for subgrade. The soil samples were gathered from the zones of Chandigarh where clayey soil is present in abundance. The laboratory testing led to decide the strength and compactive effort of the clay soil. This investigation includes three principle tests. The primary test is standard proctor test. The subsequent test is California bearing ratio and the third test is the direct shear test. Proctor test gives the compactive effort of the soil and CBR gives the subgrade strength. The outcomes acquired are thought about for the examples and inferences are drawn towards the unstability and effectiveness of admixture support at different percentages, as replacement for high quality subgrade and cost-effective approach.
