Power Road -


A subsidiary of the Vinci group, Eurovia is testing its Power Road in the town of Egletons (Corrèze).

Over a distance of 120 m, the asphalt is heated and can reach 60 ° C.

To do this, there is no need for electricity: it is a liquid circulating in pipes and which absorbs the heat of the sun!

Tested for a few days, the system has already shown its effectiveness after heavy snowfall.

Unfortunately, this technology has a cost: it takes € 250,000 more than for the same portion in conventional asphalt.
