Why Plastic Roads? Governments are reluctant to pave roads that are not considered "high priority" although the 7 schools are located in one of the highest touristed areas of Central America. The initiative has met many times with government leaders and we are convinced that they will greenlight the project since we have introduced this innovative and sustainable solution.
LANAMME- UCR, the National Laboratory of Structural and Models of Costa Rica, a government research facility connected to the University of Costa Rica, has created sustainable designs for each school road and the municipality has provided permits. Once the government provides the funding to build the roads, this plastic road pilot project will be completed and provide model for others.
