Cement based concrete, forming a large surface, typically cast in place and may have predetermined breaking joints.

Note that continuous concrete surface without any breaks can be also formed from pre-cast elements.

For concrete not forming continuous surface use surface=concrete:plates or surface=concrete:lanes if one of these tags fits.

See surface=paving_stones for surface paved with artificial blocks or natural stones with a flat top. Such pavers are often made out of concrete.

See surface=asphalt for asphalt concrete.
