Red Carpet Concept / Road Re-Cycler

Red Carpet Concept
Red Carpet Concept

As of today, road maintenance is an extremely energy-intensive process; it requires multiple machines and hundreds of tonnes of raw materials. The work process causes a severe interference of the traffic in cities every time street maintenance is performed. The Red Carpet is an environmentally conscious solution for road maintenance in future Mega-Cities, where street traffic is predicted to become increasingly dense and unstoppable. This futuristic road-recycling paver allows inner city traffic to continue its flow without interruptions by letting vehicles drive over it while it maintains the road using existing materials.
