New glow in the dark road feature on Australian roads goes viral – and the incredible idea could save thousands of lives

An ingenious new invention from a little Australian company using a product commonly found in children’s toys could save thousands of lives.

Tarmac Linemarking from Victoria’s Gippsland is trialling its new photoluminescent lines on a 1kilometre stretch in the state’s southeast – with the results going viral.

The coating of the lines projects a light that it absorbs and stores through the day, creating a brighter marking at night.

The photoluminescent lines have a clear advantage over the current markings when driving through dark roads

John Emanuelli from Tarmac Linemarking said he has been inundated with requests since the trial started, particularly by councils and businesses looking to illuminate pathways.

‘There’s been a lot of interest since the trial run, it’s a great product,’ he told News.

The regional Aussie company believe the product can be used for dark carparks, sidewalks and boat ramps as well as increasing the safety on roads.

The program is one of the Victorian government’s 70 trials being conducted, spending $4million on innovative new ideas.

The state government are also looking at introducing LED-lit pavements near intersections and improving reflective markings.

‘This treatment will make it easier for drivers to see the linemarkings or signage and provide stronger definition coming up to intersections and curves, giving drivers more time to react and preventing them from veering from their lane,’ Regional Roads Victoria said.

‘This will be particularly beneficial for people who are not familiar with driving through the area.’

The images, published by Tarmac Linemarking, have been shared 100,000 on Facebook times while a Reddit post has been up-voted 47,000 times.

‘OMG I hope this is going to be Australia wide, that looks awesome!!’ a woman commented.

‘What an awesome idea! We need these on every road,’ a man said.

‘Would be great if this was Australian wide, when it’s dark, wet, it’s hard to see the lines so on roads would be fantastic,’ another added.

Tarmac Linemarking said cloudy days would see the lines less pronounced than following a sunny period but the glow would be strongest during the dangerous dusk period
