There are several factors that affect the fresh concrete workability: water demand and composition of Portland cement, properties of fine and coarse aggregates, presence of superplasticizer and others admixtures, etc. Influence of quantity and fineness of ground quartz additives as well as polycarboxylate-based superplasticizer amount on workability of fresh concrete was studied in the paper. The properties of fresh mixture (slump) and hardened concrete (compressive strength at the age of 24 hours, 28 and 360 days) were estimated. Enhancing the fresh concrete workability using fine ground quartz sand was stated. Savings of superplasticizer per 1 m3 of slab concrete and 1 km of the ballastless track were calculated.
