Plastic Roads That Fit Like LEGO To Be Made From Recycled Ocean Waste
We know that there’s a whole lot of plastic rubbish floating in the ocean. And if someone was to fish it out, a company in Netherlands would be ready to make it into roads. They suggest transforming the plastic into hollow road blocks – with the hollows intended to house the cables and pipes in one, easy to reach place.
The blocks would snap together not unlike LEGO bricks, making way for easy assembly and removal. That would also make the roads ideal for areas with bad terrain – the swampy ground of Netherlands certainly qualifies.
The idea is the brainchild of the VolkerWessels, a Dutch construction group, and the idea has already attracted the interest of from the city of Rotterdam. The project still has at least 3 years of RnD in front of it, much like any other ambitious project involving ocean plastic waste.
