The PlasticRoad concept, first introduced in 2015 by VolkerWessels subsidiary KWS, entails recycling plastic waste into lightweight modules with hollow interiors that can be fitted with cables and plastic pipes and allow excess water to drain.
The pre-fabricated units will be easy to transport, assemble and maintain, and the lighter weight means the ground will be less prone to subsidence.
The objective is to create a road with a smaller ecological footprint than traditional road systems.
When the elements reach their end of life expectancy they can be recycled again, contributing to a circular economy and cleaner environment.
