Permeable asphalt pavements, which infiltrates rain water to the subgrade is expected to insure preservation of water circulation as well as safety and comfortability of vehicle operation and pedestrian. Until now, application of permeableasphaltpavements has been limitedtoplaceslikesidewalksand parking areas, where traffic conditions are less severe compared to the roadway, which is generally not yet covered. This study performed and examined tests on the application ofpermeableasphaltpavements to heavy traffic road. Results from FWD deflection tests and dynamic plate bearing tests on subgrade sand base showed that the pavement system could assureits structural durability after repetitive dumpt ruck loading.
