Roads are regarded as arteries and veins of a country which are essential for sustainable economic growth. Rapid population growth and industrialization generated the use of transportation facility to carry commercial vehicle loads and repetitive applications of it thereby producing heavier stresses especially on road running in clayey soil areas are known for bed condition and unpredictable behaviour for which the nature of the soil contribute to some extent The failures of pavement in from of heave depression cracking and unevenness are caused by the seasonal moisture variation in subgrade soil. The correct stabilization of foundation soils constitutes an increasingly important issue in the present civil engineering world to alter the properties of soil to meet the desired engineering properties for improving strength and durability. Initially the investigation of soil is carried out to evaluate the physical and engineering properties as per Indian Standard classified as CL (Clay soil having low plasticity) as per Indian Standard (1498 – 1970) by conducting laboratory tests and to evaluate the improvement in properties by the addition of 2 % PPC as stabilizers to be used in pavement design for economy.
