RIYADH: The Roads General Authority, in partnership with the Ministry of Municipal, Rural Affairs, and Housing, has begun conducting a new experiment to cool the roads in the Kingdom.

The newly developed technology aims to reduce the heat absorbed by roads during the day. With roads reaching high temperatures of 70 degrees Celsius, the heat they absorb is released at night, which causes a scientific phenomenon known as a heat island.
