What an amazing way to make use of unused space for such a positive purpose. The cyclist that will be using the space shall be separated from the regular traffic on the highway via guardrail while the solar panels shall provide cover and shade from the weather. The project is part of a much bigger project that aims at building a bike path network measuring in at a length of more than 350km and shall circumvent the city of Sejong.
According to Kompulsa news, South Korea has created a PV-covered bike lane connecting Sejong and Daejeon which offers a clean transit option that utilizes unused median space in an existing highway while providing renewable solar electricity.
The PV-covered bike lanes run approximately 20 miles (32 kilometers) from Sejong to Daejeon
This project highlights that buses and cars need not dominate city transportation and that there are a number of unutilized spaces right beneath our noses that can be utilized in a constructive manner. In this case, clean energy is being generated and carbon emissions are being reduced and thus helping with saving the planet from global warming.
