Solar-powered, glow in the dark bike lanes are currently being tested near Lidzbark Warminski in the north of Poland. When fully charged, the synthetic material can provide up to 10 hours of light according to the material’s creators, TPA Instytut Badań Technicznych Sp. z o.o.

The project, while similar in concept to Studio Roosegaarde’s Starry Night Bike Lane, differs in the technology used, as Studio Roosegaarde’s was LED-powered and temporary.

The project is still in the testing phase and it will be interesting to see if the material proves viable for bike paths and other public uses.
