Nowadays, the nanotechnology is widely applied in pavement engineering in order to improve the properties of materials and their performance. Nanotechnology can be considered as the measurement on nanometer scale that affects the material used in pavement due to its unique characteristic. Therefore, this new technology might indirectly solve the current pavement construction problems. The application of nanotechnology in enhancing the performance of fresh bitumen in term of the longevity and
