ASTANA. KAZINFORM - Kazakhstan needs to build the world's first network of highways made of glass, this has been announced by Yelebai Sagytov, an engineer from Astana.

According to his words, glass is much durable than asphalt. Yelebai Sagytov believes that glass roads may also be used as giant solar panels that produce electricity. Kazinform refers to Express K newspaper. The first experimental section of glass road was built by American Scott Brousseau. The prototype was created of glass "tiles" that are resistant to damage and provide the same grip of the tires, as well as conventional asphalt. Material can also be recharged by running a current transport right while driving. By the way, the cost of one kilometer of solar road will amount to $6 million while the cost of the usual road is three times less.
