ABSTRACT
Murrum is widely used material for the construction of pavement shoulders. Sometimes the available murrum may not satisfy the requirement of CBR and hence need to be modified. The locally available granular material like sand and/ or the crusher dust may be mixed to the soil to obtain the desired characteristics. The paperdiscusses results of the experimental study in which the quality of local murrum has been improved by adding stone dust. The index properties, compaction characteristics and California Bearing Ratio (CBR) parameters for the murrum blended with varying percentages of the stone dust has been presented and it is shown that the utility of the soil as a road material has been increased greatly by simple mixing of the granular material.
