Lismore's first road paved with glass
IN A GREEN first for Lismore, a 500m section of road has been paved with glass.
The stretch, near Numulgi Hall, uses glass sand from the Glass Processing Plant built in May 2014.
"This is a revolution in how we construct roads," said Lismore City Council's executive director of infrastructure services Gary Murphy.
The council would be using the glass sand in all road base from this point forward.
Since the establishment of the plant, all old glass, crockery and pyrex collected from yellow-lidded recycling bins has been crushed into sand and stockpiled, ready for use in road base.
