The hollow structure there is room for other infrastructure such as cables, pipes and water

VolkerWessels construction company introduced the concept Plastic Road; a concept of plastic that is circular, quick to apply and also hardwearing.

Advantages

Plastic offers lots of advantages both in construction and in the maintenance of roads.

  • It is maintenance free product
  • Barely wearable
  • The material is impervious to weather
  • Plastic is resistant to heavy frost and extreme heat
    Forty degrees of frost or eighty degrees above zero for plastic roads will be no problem

Recycled plastic

VolkerWessels claims that the roads are built with 100 percent recycled material. Plastics are processed into ‘prefab’ road segments: industrial road sections which are completely transported to the new road. The road can be build in a short period of time. Moreover, because of the hollow structure there is room for other infrastructure such as cables, pipes and water.

Rotterdam pilot

The first candidate for a plastic road is the city of Rotterdam. That municipal wants to participate in a trial.

We are hoping to gain insight about the consequences for motorcyclists. What will be the grip of the plastic surfaces?
