The Plastic Road is a road made of recycled plastic. It is prefabricated and features a hollow space that can be used for various purposes. This includes water storage, transit of cables and pipes, heating roads, generating energy etc. The PlasticRoad elements allow for circular reuse.
Imagine that constructing a road would take days instead of months. That roads would last three times as long. That maintenance and traffic disruption are things of the past.
This may sound like a scenario in the distant future, but nothing could be further from the truth. KWS, a VolkerWessels company, Wavin and Total are working on the development of plastic roads, also known as the Plastic Road.
