Scottish housebuilder unveils waste plastic road


A Scottish housebuilder has used plastic waste to build a road on one of its developments, in what is thought to be a UK first.

Springfield Properties boss Innes Smith said its installation at a site in Elgin would help tackle the country’s “plastic waste epidemic”.

The design reduces the use of bitumen, a form of crude oil used to make roads.
