Dutch unveil glow-in-the-dark road
Glow in the dark road markings have been unveiled on a 500m stretch of highway in the Netherlands.
The paint contains a "photo-luminising" powder that charges up in the daytime and slowly releases a green glow at night, doing away with the need for streetlights.
Bank study calls for investment in weather-related infrastructure
Global News via The Canadian Press
As a return on investment, Duff's Ditch has been a spectacular success.
Manitoba's Red River Floodway, built by premier Duff Roblin for just under $63 million in the mid-1960s with the federal government covering 60 per cent of the cost, has spared the city of Winnipeg an estimated $30 billion in flood damages in the nearly half century since it was completed in 1968.
Ontario commits $25 million for cycling infrastructure
Transportation Minister Glen Murray has announced that the province will provide $25 million for cycling facilities on provincial highways and municipal roads over the next three years in an effort to make Ontario Canada's premier cycling province.
The money, the first specifically set aside for biking in the provincial budget, will be for "quick wins" and pilot projects.
Kathleen Wynne announces $29 billion transit and transportation plan
Premier Kathleen Wynne says the minority Liberal government will spend $29 billion in new money over the next 10 years on transit and transportation — $15 billion for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area and $14 billion for the rest of the province.
Speaking to a noon-hour Toronto crowd of about 500, Wynne said it will dedicate 7.5 cents per litre of the gas tax and the HST on fuel tax — totalling more than $1.3 billion annually — to build new transit, roads, highways and bridges.
"We need an aggressive and serious investment in transit right here in the GTHA (Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area)," she said, adding the money now goes into general government coffers.
