Subgrade performan cegenerally depends on the load bearing capacity of soil. This load is oftenaffected by degree of compaction, moisture contentandsoiltype. Poor subgrade should be avoided by removal, replace and add stabilizer agent to provide a suitable strength for subgrade. This study presents the effect of cement stabilizer on California Bearing Ratio(CBR)and Unconfined Compressive Strength(UeS) for kaolinclay in low traffic volume road.The test conducted includes determination of liquid limit swhich lead stop lasticity index for tested sample.Standard proctortes thavebeenconducted to determine the optimum moisture content and maximum dry density of kaolin clay by using soil stabilizer with 0,7 and 13% of Ordinary Portl and cement(OPC).The CBR and UCS was conduct todetermine the strength of kaolin clay at optimum moisture content and 7 days curing period to obtain minimum strength of the soil.Finding of this study shows cement stabilizer effectively increase the strength of kaolin clay. 8% of cement was found to be the optimum percentage of cement content value to be added into kaolin soil which complies with the Malaysia Public Work Department(PWD)specification.
