This study discussed the mechanical properties of natural and metakaolin based geopolymer stabilized soil. The mechanical soil properties is an important soil properties that determine the soil strength parameter and its behaviour. It is proposed to do an assessment on 2 types of soil: natural (remolded) soil and metakaolin based geopolymer (MKG) stabilised soil of Bengawan Solo River Embankment soil. The soil sample are treated on oedometer test in order to know soil compressibility and permeability. The result shows that the implication of MKG for natural (remolded) soil only have an influence in reducing swelling. Also for the permeability, it is found that despite the high porosity (index high vacuum), its permeability is smaller than the permeability of other mixtures.
