In the Netherlands, two innovators, Daan Roosegaarde, an artist famous for novelty projects, and Hans Goris, a civil engineer working at Heijmans have developed the highway that glows in the dark.
The article “Motorway of the future uses glow-in-the-dark road paint” features the development of futuristic highways (or of any infrastructure types) causes professionals to think of its impact on infrastructure management and infrastructure asset management planning.
Have you given thought on the impact of futuristic highways to service levels and service delivery costs?
Road safety and energy conservation motivated the innovators of this futuristic highway.
This recent innovation in highway engineering points to trends that may impact our asset management plans, and asks the question – have we given this type of innovation enough consideration?
