Future Will Be Built on Plastic Boards
VolkerWessles have developed new plastic roads that are designed to be easier to build than current roads and it is made of plastic so they will last longer, way more longer.
The plastic roads are constructed from recycled plastic and they are capable of surviving higher and lower temperatures that current roads, plus they are easier to repair.
Plastic roads can be pre-assembled and then laid quickly, which could cut road construction times significantly.
PlasticRoad features numerous advantages compared to conventional roads, both in terms of construction and maintenance. Plastic is much more sustainable and opens the door for a number of new innovations such as power generation, quiet road surfaces, heated roads and modular construction. Additionally, the PlasticRoad design features a ‘hollow’ space that can be used for cables, pipes and rainwater.
