Fig. 2. Photograph of Present Road condition with and without Geotextile Overlay 4. CONCLUSIONS SASMIRA developed geotextiles both woven and nonwovens were found to be acceptable for pavement overlay applica tion as per the laboratory evaluation. Both woven and ionwovens can be used for pavement overlay applications. These help to improve the service life of the roads, Reinforc- ing strength and permittivity characteristics are the major attributes for the geotextles used for pavement overlay ap. plications. The nonwoven material developed has been put of field trial at a prominent location in Mumbai. It has been found effective over the period of observation.
