Geotextiles play a very important and crucial role in the civil engineering works. Geotextiles are permeable textile structures made of polymeric materials and are used mainly in civil engineering applications in conjunction with soil, rock and water, performing various functions such as separation, filtration, drainage and reinforcement. They come in three basic forms: woven, non-woven, or knitted. They are the largest group of geosynthetics in terms of volume. They are used in geotechnical engineering, heavy construction, building and roadway construction, hydrogeology and environmental engineering, etc. Geotextiles are used with foundations, soil, rock, earth or any other related material as an integral part of any project, structure, or system. The possible applications of geotextiles in civil engineering field have been successfully developed and are beneficial in terms of economics, durability and performance. They are used in earth dam, roadway, highway, rail road, and industry, stabilisation of soil of rock slopes, drainage control, tunnel construction, coastal medical treatment and foundation. This paper provides an overview of the properties, functions and uses of Geo-textiles in roadway construction. Citation: Jaladhi Chitaria, Jitendrasinh Raol.
