Traditional permeable pavements are constructed with rigid aggregates and have low load-bearing capacity. The crack development due to loads and unpredicted ground movements reduces their service life. The widespread cracks on the surface of conventional asphalt accelerate the pavement structure deterioration and reduce the overall service life. In this research, the end-of-life tyre products shredded to tyre-derived aggregates (TDAs) were utilised along with crushed rock (CR) in different fractions of a porous structure to enhance the flexibility of permeable pavement whilst maintaining the minimum load-bearing capacity for use in footpath and low-volume roads. The transitional behaviour fr..
