Abstract: The use of recycled materials commonly plastic bottle increasing rapidly and disposal of waste plastic bottle has become a serious problem and waste plastics are burnt for apparent disposal which cause environmental pollution. Utilization of waste plastic in bituminous mixes has proved that these enhance the properties of mix in addition to solving disposal problems. This study project has been developed to discuss in detail as how the plastic waste can be handled and used successfully in the construction of roads thus mitigating the environmental problems and economize the cost of construction of road with in the country. The aim of this study is to reduce the waste plastic material and reuse in flexible road construction. These plastic wastes are used in bitumen as a modifier. In the study laboratory test result show the improvement in engineering property like Penetration value, Ductility test, Flash point test, and Softening point test, Marshall Stability test of modified bituminous mixes for different percentage of plastic i.e. 8%, 12%, and 16% of plastic mix and using plastic contents 5% , 7 % , 9 % with bitumen as compared to unmodified mix. Utilization of waste plastic bags in bituminous mixes has proved that these enhance the properties of mix in addition to solving disposal problems. Plastic waste which is cleaned is cut into a size such that it passes through 2-3mm sieve using shredding machine. Generally a bituminous mixture is a mixture of coarse aggregate, fine aggregate, filler and binder. A Hot Mix Asphalt is a bituminous mixture where all constituents are mixed, placed and compacted at high temperature. HMA can be Dense Graded mixes (DGM) known as Bituminous Concrete (BC) or gap graded known as Stone Matrix Asphalt (SMA). SMA requires stabilizing additives composed of cellulose fibbers, mineral fibres or polymers to prevent drain down of the mix
