Sustainable Roads

Road signs, traffic lights, emergency phones, road lights, toll booths, and billboards consume a lot of energy. A steadily dwindling reserve of fossil fuel is used to produce this energy. Toxic greenhouse gases are emitted into the atmosphere, raising global temperatures, resulting in weather related disasters like storms, floods and droughts. Transporting construction material from their point of origin, construction and demolition debris disposal are of concern when building roads.
