If your prototype is one solid panel, replacement would cause traffic chaos, with no option of temporary lights
Panels are prefabricated off site pal - brought in and lifted into position. Replaced in minutes. Special truck being invented currently, in my head,-for laying them.

Minimal delays all round

Hey presto, I present the framed road (c)

Basically, a steel frame is sunk where the road currently is on top of which are tarmac panels that connect to each other like jigsaws. Behold below is a void from where service ducts, drainage and other assorted technical wizardry can be kept.

Services are sunk by lifting the panel and re placing rather than long dig delays. Panels damaged through wear and tear can be replaced as necessary. The tarmac platform can be prepared with tracks for trams/trains etc

The down side is the cost but it can be done gradually - city centres first and then onto large towns. One day, even Colne will have it.

Basically a suspended ceiling in reverse.

I will repay good rep now in cash later when Iím a billionaire.

and then every other panel could be a solar panel which could then in turn power electric cars as they pass over the panels.



edit: fuck off irk

I like it. To recoup some of the costs we could have sponsored tiles, with company logos branded into the tarmac. "Today's traffic jam was brought to you by Starbucks etc. "

How does the steel function under extreme environmental conditions - heat/cold?
How does the road drain?

A sensor that allows roads to regenerate into newly built condition is more ergonomic imo
