Abstract:     
The intention of this review paper is to summaries the wide-range but diffuses literature on mainly permeable pavement systems (PPS), highlight current trends in research and industry, and to recommend future areas of research and development. Permeable pavements are alternatives to traditional impervious asphalt and concrete pavements.

Interconnected void spaces in the pavement allow for water to infiltrate into a subsurface storage zone during rainfall events with 3000 mm/hr. Infiltration of stormwater runoff reduces runoff peaks and runoff volumes as the climate of Malaysia is equatorial with high humidity. It has an annual rainfall volume of 320 billion cubic meters (bcm) for Peninsular Malaysia; 194 bcm for Sabah, and 476 bcm for Sarawak.

The development of PPS as an integral part of sustainable drainage systems is reviewed in the context of traditional and modern urban drainage. Permeable pavements can operate as efficient hydrocarbon traps and powerful in-situ bioreactors. Particular highlight is given to detailed design, maintenance and water quality control aspects. The most important target pollutants are hydrocarbons, heavy metals and nutrients. The advantages and disadvantages of different PPS are discussed with the help of recent case studies.

The latest innovations are highlighted and explained, and their potential for further research work is outlined. Recent research of this new type of permeable pavement using honeycomb shaped modular from recycled polyvinyl chloride, PVC can store and collect rain, provide erosion and sediment control, effectively convey and deliver water, and protect natural areas is on the development. This recycling pavement system is shows potential.
