Concrete pavement can be maintained over time utilizing a series of methods known as concrete pavement restoration which include diamond grinding, dowel bar retrofits, joint and crack sealing, cross-stitching, etc. Diamond grinding is also useful in reducing noise and restoring skid resistance in older concrete pavement.

In areas with high levels of snow, such as Snowy Mountains NSW (where this picture was taken), yellow lines are used to contrast the white snow. The markers on the side of the road are also taller than other markers in NSW and pink, in order to increase visibility in snowy weather.
The bridge over the Thredbo River, one of the points in which the white lines become yellow as the amount of snowfall increases

An example is the dowel bar retrofit process to reinforce concrete slabs in order to extend the life of older concrete pavements.
