AC-WC and HRS Base pavement mixture are the type of pavement used as surface and base respectively. Durability of pavement will reduce after service due to the environmental effects. Hence, additives such as Styrofoam is added to enhance the stability and durability. This research investigates the durability of the pavement at the surface and base course. Marshall specimen containing 1.5% Styrofoam was prepared and immersed for 0, 1, 3, 7 and 14 days in order to determine the Residual Strength Index, First durability Index and Second Durability Index. These indexes represent the durability of the pavement. From this study, it was found out that the Residual Strength Index value decreased with the increment of immersion duration for both layers. The IDP and IDK with Styrofoam of AC-WC were higher than the specimens without Styrofoam which were 0.377% and 7.752% respectively. Similar trends were observed for HRS Base. This implies that the use of Styrofoam in the pavement is advantageous because it has the potential to improve the durability of mixture.
