I think that this is a grand scheme indeed, and if it can be made to work, then it will be one of the greatest triumphs, and the biggest change to
the automotive landscape since the first mile of tarmac was laid.
The biggest challenge that this new road surface will face, will be dealing with different weather and temperature circumstances, and I will be very
interested to see how things progress with regard to that factor. Along side that, there is the question of how well this material will handle the
sort of damage that current road surfaces have to deal with, like road traffic accidents. Some of these have been known to leave deep gouges ground
into the road surface, and finding out how well this new surface will stand up to that sort of damage, is going to be crucial to understanding how
useful it will be.
The smart aspects of the proposed scheme, are of course, very interesting, and I cannot wait to see how well it turns out!
If I may, I would like to request that if any members find themselves within road trip distance of a road made using these techniques, then it would
be great to see some feedback from a member who has actually used one of these new fangled roads!
