Abstract

Conventional asphalt used in the road construction in Albania has faced many problems due to lower quality of the asphalt and maintenance. Most of the problems comes from urban and industrial cities where the usage of the vehicles is very high. The problem has been faced in the first three years after their construction with conventional asphalt due to lower crack resistance and skid resistance. This emerged situation it has grown recently an interest from different researchers, companies and Albanian government to support improvement the quality of the road construction. Our research work will be focused on the production of the mixture asphalts by using Recycled Tire Rubber Modified Bitumen’s (RTR-MBs). Moreover, it will be analysed the physical and mechanical test which involve respectively penetration test, softening point test and Marshall test. All the new results will be compared to the conventional.
