A rural pavement stretch of size 2.5 m × 16 m using Alkali activated concrete paver blocks is constructed at Jaspur Village, Kalol, Gandhinagar by the department of Civil Engineering, Institute of Technology, Nirma University. The paver blocks are made using zero cement concrete (alkali activated concrete) and used for the construction of the rural pavement having low traffic volume.

The above work is one of the outcome of the research project titled “Application of Precast Products Made Using Bottom Ash And Fly Ash For Rural Pavements And Other Infrastructure In India”. The said project is a collaborative research project between University of Victoria, Canada & Nirma University, India and is approved by IC-IMPACTS (India-Canada Centre for Innovative Multidisciplinary Partnerships to Accelerate Community Transformation and Sustainability) Centres of Excellence.

The paver blocks used to make the pavement are of “Unipaver”/“Zigzag” shape & of thickness of 60 mm. The alkali activated concrete paver blocks have attained the compressive strength up to 40 MPa after the completion of ambient curing for the time duration of 28-days. The alkali activated concrete paver blocks contained a combination of fly ash and Bottom ash, Coarse aggregate limited to size of 10 mm, Sand, Sodium Hydroxide & Sodium Silicate. Fly ash & Bottom ash are the waste products of the thermal power plants. Sodium hydroxide & sodium silicate used for the paver blocks are of commercial grade. Therefore, it is anticipated that the alkali activated paver blocks are economical as compared to that of cement concrete paver blocks.

The step-by-step procedure of making the pavement stretch consists, 1) Preparation of around 1200 Nos. of alkali activated concrete paver blocks at concrete casting yard of civil engineering department, Nirma University. 2) Excavation of size 2.5 m × 16 m having depth of 200 mm using Backhoe. 3) Laying of PCC of depth 100 mm having grade of concrete of M10. 4) Laying of 12 inch Kerb stones around edges of the pavement. 5) Laying of 40 mm depth sand bedding. 6) Laying of paver blocks having depth of 60 mm in herringbone bond. 7) Joint sealing between paver blocks using compactor.
