Eindhoven designer Daan Roosegaarde’s first Glow-in-the-Dark road was opened last night. On the N329 near Oss the first ‘Glowing Lines’ were unveiled by Minister Schultz van Haegen.
In collaboration with construction company Heijmans, Roosegaarde developed a special paint that recharges during the day and lights up in the dark. The paint can ‘glow’ for about 8 hours.
A total of about 500 meters of the N329 has been painted with the special paint now. The luminous stripes are part of a pilot project to examine whether the paint can be used in more parts of the country.
