Government of India is focusing on infrastructure development for maintaining the growth and GDP. Rural roads, state & national highways and expressway construction is planned across the country. Geosynthetics have been used in pavement since many years to solve challenging problems across the globe.
Recently, Indian Road Congress (IRC) has published guideline- IRC SP 59, covering the use of geosynthetics in pavements. In this workshop research, field studies, guideline IRC SP 59, standards and software demonstrations will be delivered and discussed. Geosynthetics is the need of hour as it can save most precious natural granular materials, making it sustainable solution. Also, use of geosynthetics can reduce direct cost of project and increase speed of construction.
