This paper aim’s to ensure that the transmitted stresses due to wheel load are adequately reduced, so that they will not exceed bearing capacity of the sub- grade. This present study deals with the design thickness of flexible pavements, where majority of the Indian roads are flexible pavements having bituminous layer. Earlier, due to the scarcity of cement and India went for flexible pavements with bituminous toppings. This flexible pavement is preferred over cement concrete roads as they have a great advantage that these can be strengthened and improved in stages with the growth of traffic. With a major advantage of this roads and their surfaces milled and recycled for rehabilitation. The flexible pavements are less expensive also about initial investment and maintenance. In this present study, the flexible pavement thickness is designed for both sub grade soils as per IRC:37-2001 code and its pavement thickness is calculated by California Bearing Ratio (CBR)method.
