The Solar Roadway - A Series of Structurally-Engineered Solar Panels that are Driven Upon | Amazing Science

Years ago, when the phrase "Global Warming" began gaining popularity, we started batting around the idea of replacing asphalt and concrete surfaces with solar panels that could be driven upon. We thought of the "black box" on airplanes: We didn't know what material that black box was made of, but it seemed to be able to protect sensitive electronics from the worst of airline crashes. Suppose we made a section of road out of this material and housed solar cells to collect energy, which could…

“Here, what planners call a ‘bump out.’ It’s a foundational #VisionZero move: a narrowing of the intersection - in this example to correspond with street side parking - to make the walk across the street shorter for pedestrians, while also slowing the movement of cars. #SafeCity”

The Cambridge Guided Busway

Now, finally, open - the world's longest guided busway! After spending many millions of pounds it now supports a service of mostly seven buses per hour (6 Stagecoach, 1 Whippet) from the outskirts of St Ives to the outskirts of Cambridge. Notice the word 'outskirts'. Buses still have to take their chance with the traffic to and from the city centre in Cambridge.... Stops en-route serve, at best, remote locations right on the edges of villages. Time savings between principal stops don't seem…
