Replace rather than repair roads

The company VolkerWessels makes roads out of recycled plastic. The roads slot together etc and last longer than tarmac roads. As roads become damaged around the island rather than having to repair then time and time again we should start introducing this system. Then when they do eventually become damaged it is also quick and easy to replace the road.

Why the contribution is important

http://www.businessinsider.com/a-dutch-city-is-planning-to-build-roads-from-recycled-plastic-2015-7 The company is currently testing in the Netherlands, a leading country in innovative techniques. It would be good for us to get involved and save money paying for materials and labour to repair roads in the future. Not only does this have the potential to bring down costs in the future but it is also reducing the islands carbon footprint, something in which more thought needs to be put.
