Fly ash, a waste derived from coal burning in thermal power plants is plentiful in India causing severe health, environment and dumping p ro blems. It is estimated that about 150 million tons of fly ash are being produced from various thermal power plants in India. Utilization of fly ash in bulk quantities, ways and means is being explored all over the world to use it for the construction of embankments and roads. This way the fly ash concrete are made a `greener` building material and the discarded natural wastes can be re - utilized, avoiding otherwise wasteful landfill and h armful open incineration. To make value added concrete for development of sustainable infrastructure there is a great need to study the technical details concerned with various industrial wastes in concrete and to reduce environmental hazards. It is also n eeded to reduce the cost of concrete for rural development in India. So our study is concerned with eco - efficient utilization of Fly Ash ( F - class ) as partial replacement of cement in concrete. The aim of the present study is to investigate the low cost rur al roads made of fly ash (F - class) . The fly ash (F - class) was replaced within the range of 10 - 40 % by weight of cement . In the present study, 5 different mixes of fly ash concrete s are tested for parameters like: compressive strength, flexural strength , modulus of elasticity and cost.
