QUICKWAY is a traffic system over existing roads for passenger and freight transport in "green cities", both for new and existing Megacities. The system consists of slender, cross-free, high-speed ways for autonomous vehicles. Additionally, new paths for cycling and pedestrian emerge at the existing roads. In addition to the roadways in different levels, a roof construction is integrated to protect the traffic from environmental influences and collect rainwater and or solar energy. This article deals with the material development of QUICKWAY. The prefabricated components for QUICKWAY are produced of Ultra high performance fibre reinforced concrete UHPFRC. The challenges of the usage as well as the wide-spanned construction places high demands on the fresh and hardened concrete properties of the material.
