Abstract: Connectivity in rural areas is a key aspect of its holistic development. Rural roads are low traffic volume roads. In this paper, study has been done on the construction methodology of rural roads using local resources i.e., local labour, local materials etc. Locally available stones, cobbles, plum etc. have been used with concrete mix. This study throws light on three types of rigid pavements which follow the evolution of Roman road construction methods. These are Cobblestone pavements (CSPs), Plum Concrete pavements (PCPs) and Un-reinforced Concrete pavements (UCPs). This paper discuss about the materials used and the construction methodology of all these three types of rigid pavement. The paper also presents an outline of locally available materials which helps in reducing the overall cost of construction of pavements.
