This bike lane in Korea is topped with 20 miles of solar panels

Is this the greenest road ever? 
The greenest
road ever?

A highway in Korea features a stunning solar-powered bike lane running right down the middle. The lane is offset, protected by barriers, and sheltered by solar panels. 

The lane runs from Daejeon to Sejong, a distance of around 20 miles (32 km), which is a few hours’ drive from the capital city Seoul. It’s a fantastic idea that could pave the way for similar commuting-style bike lanes in the future.



(This idea excites me, but equally, I am saddened by the massive infrastructure, with which it is integral and provided for fossil fuelled power cars and trucks - Robert McLean)
