Abstract: Highway & Road Concrete pavement maintenance is a routine work performed to keep pavement which is exposed to normal conditions of traffic and nature such as wind, rain, show, temperature, etc. as near to its original conditions as possible, all types of concrete pavements require maintenance of cracks, potholes, depressions and other types of distress. In major cities and towns utility cuts and repaints are major contributors to the need for pavement maintenance, Repairing of pavement deteriorations at the proper time and the proper manner method can significantly increase the life of the pavement. Early detection and repair of minor defects are among the most important activates of the road maintenance department. Now – a days the use of 12 hours created mix for patching inhere traffic road way in urban areas. The current 12 Hrs benid of strength gain to 4 hours only. This work uses high early strength cement and chemical admixtures on one hand and low water cement ration and / or high conventional cement contents. Sustained materials on the other hand attain early strength, conclusive recommendations of a combination of these techniques and / or the individual techniques used based on strength criterion (compressive strength) and durability criterion is made. Admixtures like steel fibers, polypropylene fibers, aluminum pins, clips etc of non rusting metals are being used in this technique. This increases the wear and tear strength at the patch. Shrinkage reducing admixtures (SRA) one not being commonly used, now – a days. The use SRA and HPC or high strength concrete is descrying of further research Synthetic fibers are often uses to increase wearing strength. Possible benefits of use at such admixtures is increasing resistances to shrinkage, creating improved band strength. Finder reinforced concrete has been shown in several studies to be more restant to shrinkage cracking (Padron and Zolo, 1990, Gryzbowsti and shah, 1990) Conrek key word road pavement maintenance, high strength concrete, sustainable materials
