Pervious concrete is a sure sort of concrete with a high porosity utilized for concrete flatwork applications that will permit the water from precipitation and different sources to go straightforwardly through, along these lines diminishes the overflow from a site and permitting groundwater to revive. The concrete glue at that point coats the totals and enables water to go through the concrete piece. With interconnected void content, we can achieve high porosity. Water-to-cementitious material ratio is 0.40–0.50. Designs were made at different water–cement ratios, and these ratios show the different exposure conditions. In this paper, specific gravity of cement, coarse aggregate and fine aggregate were selected as 3.15, 2.68, 2.65 respectively. Cement used in this project was OPC-43. Coarse aggregate were used at different proportions. The present examination tended to the strength and seepage parts of pervious concrete mix and furthermore the impact of CS as FA. A point-by-point contemplate is required to know the impacts of total degree with different kinds of total. In this undertaking, the mechanical properties of pervious concrete have been used to plan road pavements. The properties of PCC blend to be examined are compressive strenth and flexural strength. An optimum percentage has been determined which shows the concrete is permeable and having good compressive and flexural strength. In this research paper, the mechanical properties of pervious concrete have been used to design road pavements. Main focus of the paper is to determine and improve compressive strength, and flexural strength.
