No .. it's not a wind up.

It's in Normandy. It's just opened.

It cost €5m (£4.2m) to construct and will be used by about 2,000 motorists a day during a two-year test period




What about the traffic wear and tear?
What about seasonal variations ...like ice? Or snow?

I'm struggling with this. Is it as daft as it sounds?

The road doesn't work in the wet. Ha, you don't understand. It is solar powered and needs the sun to be able to drive on it. giggle

But what about skidding in the wet?

well skidding in the wet usually involves inexperienced drivers and bald tires - if the cap fits as they say!! shy
