Imagine that constructing a road that take days instead of months and last three times as long, that maintenance and traffic disruption are things of the past, and that cable and piping problems, as well as the urban water problem, are solved overnight.

This may sound like a scene from the distant future, but nothing could be further from the truth. KWS, a VolkerWessels company, Wavin and Total are working on the development of plastic roads, also known as the PlasticRoad. Every component of the PlasticRoad is being designed to make its application completely circular, with the goal of using recycled plastic as much as possible.

After a lot of research, lab tests and internal pilots, the first PlasticRoad in the world was opened on September 11th 2018. The municipality of Zwolle and the province of Overijssel in the Netherlands together are the launching customers of the PlasticRoad. The first pilot is a bike path of 30 meters.
