Abstract: Bituminous pavement concrete is composite material used in construction of road pavement, airport runway and parking. It contains bitumen and aggregate mixed together, laid in layers and compacted. The steady increment in highway traffic volume density and remarkable variation in daily and seasonal temperature causes rapid detoriation and failure of pavement surface and course. Looking into the pavement condition it is worth to think of some admixes to be used for modification in constituents and mixture which must satisfy strength and economical aspects. It is worth to note that increased use of PVC in society is raising serious environmental issues; I have tried to mix PVC waste with bitumen for preparation of pavements as a little solution for the environmental pollution. The bituminous concrete mixes prepared with defined volume of PVC and aggregate as per the codes of IRC were used to prepare samples for testing. The samples were tested for Marshall Properties like stability, flow volume, unit weight, air voids etc and the optimum PVC content for the choosed bitumen (80/100) were achieved.
