Intelligent traffic line designed by Studio Roosegaarde

500m stretch of road located in the Netherlands has removed its’ streetlights and painted the line-markings with a specially formulated glow in the dark paint.

A 500m stretch of road located in the Netherlands has removed its’ streetlights and painted the line-markings with a specially formulated glow in the dark paint. The idea is that the paint would ‘charge’ during daylight time, then glow for up to 8 hours straight in the darkness. This would be extremely beneficial as not only would it massively reduce costs on electricity, but would have less of an impact on the environment.

The same company has also got plans for a paint that reacts to changes in outdoor conditions, such as snowflake-like patterns becoming visible only when it reaches 5°C or below.
