Roadscapes Wednesday: Roads Made From Recycled Plastic Waste Could Be the Future


Currently roads are paved with asphalt or cured by concrete.  But, could roads in the future be installed with recycled waste?  Mashable went to the Netherlands to take a look at plastic roads.  In the Netherlands, three companies partnered up to collect your recycled plastic and turn it into bike paths. PlasticRoad is a Lego-like road system that consists of modular, prefabricated sections. The plastic road has a hollow space inside it and can host cables, pipelines, but also rainwater so that the street does not become flooded in case of heavy rainfall.

This is fascinating!
