Dutch firm VolkerWessels says it wants to create the first recycled plastic road in three years.
 
The Plastic Road project inventors want these 100% recycled plastic roads to be lighter than asphalt roads, require less maintenance and be three times more resistant to extreme temperatures than our current roads. Plus, the “PlasticRoad” would have an empty space where cables, pipes and rainwater could easily pass through.

Is it a plausible alternative to our traditional asphalt roads? We’ll find out in 2018!
