This article explains about the different types of highway, highway development in India and mainly explains about the various highway material used for the construction. Selected material was taken and analyzing the test results. In this the following test was conducted, in aggregate Abrasion Test, Aggregate Impact Test,Shape Test(Flakiness Index), Shape Test (Elongation Index), Aggregate Crushing Strength Test ,Specific Gravity & Absorption of Coarse Aggregate and the test of bitumen are Penetration Test,Softening Point of Bitumen, Flash and Fire Point Tests, Viscosity Test, Ductility Test,Specific Gravity of Bitumen. The soil strength for foundation layer tests with California Bearing Ratio Test. The test result shows all materials having good quality, so it can be used for construction of highway
