Pavement deformation is a major concern and this has attracted the attentions of the researchers from various background. Possible causes of pavement deterioration includes the climate, poor pavement drainage condition, heavy traffic loading, poor construction material and design and also due to poor subgrade properties where the road is constructed. Soil such as peat is known as the most challenging soil to construct road. The mechanical properties of peat such as loose and compressible are the major causes of this problem. However, they are two method such as chemical and mechanical soil stabilisation could be done to alter and improve the properties of peat. This study analyses the road pavement displacement built on the stabilised peat subgrade when critical loading is applied. Improvement on the pavement design will be implemented which will definitely maximize the potential of the stabilized peat subgrade to increase the pavement life. Finite Element Method (FEM) is applied to this study by using GeoStudio 2012 under Sigma/W. Laboratory data of previous experimental studies were collected in order to simulate a real model for this study.
