Roadways are considered one of the most important elements of infrastructure and they play an essential role in our daily lives. In road pavement construction, the use of crumb rubber in the modification of bitumen binder is considered as a smart solution for sustainable development by reusing waste materials. It is believed that crumb rubber modifier (CRM) could be one of the alternative polymer materials in improving bitumen binder performance properties of hot mix asphalt. This study aims to present and discuss the findings from some of the studies, on the use of crumb rubber in asphalt pavement.
