The research is concerned with the Effectiveness of geosynthetic to improve the performance of the pavement. It has been done on road construction projects under Addis Ababa Road Authority. Results indicated that the performance of bottom pavements structures constructed on poor subgrades with CBR values not greater than 4% was significantly enhanced using geosynthetic material. An increase of bearing capacity for subgrade and can improve the subgrade quality without excavating and filling of select material only by using geomembrane. Geosynthetic reinforcement in pavement design and construction should be widespread. Geosynthetic reinforcements are incorporated into permanent, paved roads either as base (or subbase) reinforcement - in flexible pavements to aid in the support of vehicular loads over the life of the pavement; or as subgrade restraint for construction of flexible or rigid roadways over weak subgrade conditions to aid in support of equipment loads on the unpaved base, or subbase, course during construction. Clearly, both base reinforcement and subgrade restraint with geosynthetics are proven techniques for use in pavement design and construction effectively.
