Follow the red plastic road: science wizards create street made of plastic

SOT, Man on right bike (Dutch): “The Netherlands is a country where people bike, so you start with a bike path.” A Dutch company unveiled the world's first plastic road in Zwolle on Tuesday. The 30-metre (98ft) long bike path is made out of 100 percent plastic recyclables and Wavin, the Dutch company behind the invention, say it is expected to last three times longer than a normal paved road... Еще, at half the cost. Gert-Jan Maasdam, Director of Marketing & Technology at Wavin, said: «The road itself is fully recyclable at the end of its lifetime. It’s not only a concept that not only makes roads better, faster, and easier to maintain, with a longer lifetime. But it also helps to keep the city dry.” Developers from Wavin are keeping an eye on the prototype so that improvements can be made and the road can become market-ready.
