Glow-in-the-dark road markings make debut in Holland

Light-absorbing glow-in-the-dark road markings have replaced street lights on a 500m stretch of highway in Holland.

The project is the brainchild of designer Daan Roosegaarde and his design studio.

The road markings on the N329 highway in Oss were done by road construction company Heijmans who put photo-luminescent powder into their paint.

The road markings, which currently only consists of three strips of what has been called "radioactive green", last for 8 hours after a full day's charging.
