Feasibility of Porous Pavement: A Case Study at Hatkeshwar Area of Ahmedabad City
Parmar manisha,  Dr. A. M. jain
This study represents the experimental work related to porous pavement feasibility. Now a days porous pavement is a new concept introduced worldwide. In India and other countries research is going in positive direction. There are many advantages of porous pavement. Porous pavements allow storm water runoff to filter through surface voids into an underlying stone reservoir where it is temporarily stored and/or infiltrated. For this study Hatkeshwar area of Ahmedabad city has been selected with the specific road network nearby to the Narol-Naroda corridor link joining CTM cross road to karnavati bunglows. The above road network has the history of the accumulation of water in the area during the monsoon season for long duration. To study the above objective the rainfall data for the area during the different day, month is collected. The volume data is the other important aspect for identifying the low volume road. The quality of soil sub grade is the other data, which is collected for determining the thickness of porous asphalt concrete at this road network. The soil quality is also useful in order to identify suitability of disposal of the seepage ground water nearby to the stream/artificial drainage link.
