Generally rapid hardening cement is used in repairing work, but in new construction of pavement ordinary portland is used.

** Low heat cement is used for massive works like dams, retaining walls, etc.

** Ordinary Portland Cement is used for general works except the area having sulphate attack(OPC is least resistant to Sulphate attack).

Rapid hardening is used for repair work. But for new construction OPC is use.

For road pavement - rapid hardening cement.

For massive concrete - low heat cement.

For canal lining or sever - portland slag cement.

In road pavement we should use rapid hardening cement because road is a very busy line and we can't free road for long time so to open road for use quickly we use rapid hardening cement.

Swapnil Pokulwar said: (Nov 19, 2016)  
Ordinary portland cement is the correct answer.

Vivek Patel said: (Feb 22, 2018)  
Ordinary portland cement is use to new road pavements and rapid hardening cement road repair use.

Vikram Kadam said: (Mar 31, 2018)  
Rapid hardening is correct because the road is open to traffic in minimum days and it also have one day strength equal to 3 day strength of opc.

What is sulphate attack and its effect?

Yoga said: (Aug 8, 2019)  
As per my knowledge, Opc is used.

Gaurav said: (Dec 4, 2019)  
To open the traffic as possible rapid hardening cement.

Raj said: (Jun 2, 2020)  
I think blast furnance cement use because pavement laid on soil. Sulphate present in soil so this cement protect.

Rakesh said: (Jun 4, 2020)  

Yes, you are correct.

Blast furnace slag cement is used in road pavements.

Hemant Meena said: (Aug 29, 2020)  
Rapid hardening cement is used in the repair of roads & Blast furnace slag cement is used in the construction of road b/c road payment are constructed over soil and soil is generally rich in sulphates and BFSC has good resistance against sulphate attack.

Atanu Mandal said: (Sep 10, 2020)  
Yes, BFSC use for practical purposes for road construction.

Akhil Reddy said: (Sep 19, 2020)  
Rapid Hardening cement is used for repairing works.
OPC is use for all new construction works.
So, OPC is correct answer.
