Johor Will Use Roads With Illuminated Lines in the Dark

 One of the causes of accidents is that drivers cannot see the road at night because there are no lights. In rural areas this control is difficult to avoid due to the relatively high cost of electricity and lighting installation. Two weeks ago, the Public Works Department (JKR) started a pilot program of road lines that glow in the dark (glow in the dark) in Hulu Langat. Now Bernama reports that the same technology will also be introduced in Johor.

The state government has allocated RM1 million to upgrade the road with this technology. JKR Johor will conduct an assessment before providing a list of roads in Johor that will receive them. This glow-in-the-dark road technology is found to be cheaper than placing road surface light monitors. It is seen as a solution to the issue of dark streets with no lights at night.

In addition to Malaysia, this technology has also been tested in Australia and the Netherlands. In these two countries, the paint used absorbs light energy from the sun during the day. At night the stored energy will cause it to glow green for up to eight hours.
