Poland has developed a solar-powered bike lane in the town of Lidzbark Warminski as a sustainable solution to keep nighttime cyclists safe.
The luminous strip is made up of man-made materials, which are activated after being charged by solar energy. This bike path was inspired by a starry night path in the Netherlands, which uses solar-powered LED lights, and is part of a bigger project known as the Smart Highway, which aims to bring sustainable solutions to bike-friendly places.
The interactive road speaks to members of the biking community in Poland who value sustainability and alternative solutions to energy waste. The technology used in the bike path is more expensive than traditional methods, but its sustainable properties are a potential answer to the crisis being caused by non-renewable energy.
