Our ongoing research on Permeable Road


Yes, it is possible and in some places, permeable roads are being constructed. But we are trying to increase its efficiency and decrease the cost.
Some difficulties we faced are here:

  1. It worked properly in the Terai region in the dry season. But in the rainy season, water makes the soil to settle down and fails the use of Geo synthesis we used.
    We found that it is only suitable for small traffic with a small load.
  2. We did the same research in the hilly area. There is a problem of movement of geotextiles / geosynthesis we used to construct the road.

With stones and other materials, we were able to construct road but we wanna design effective, durable, pollutionless and cheap too.
