Not Stars In Your Eyes But Stars In Your Path
Councillor campaigns for glow in the dark path for Wandsworth Park
Local Thamesfield Councillor Rosemary Torrington has launched a campaign to get a glow-in-the-dark path similar to the photo below along the riverside walk in Wandsworth Park.
The special Pro-Teq Starpath is made of bioluminescent material that soaks up UV sunlight rays during the day and then emits light at night, getting brighter the darker it becomes.
Councillor Torrington pictured on the path in Wandsworth Park said:“This would be great for cyclists using Wandsworth Park at night - a quicker and safer option than the main road. It would also benefit commuters going to or from Riverside Quarter riverbus pier in the dark and anyone walking through the park to Putney in the dark. At the moment, the park can be a little spooky at night, as there is no lighting at all. It would also help people wishing to jog or keep fit after dark or to walk their dogs, as they’d feel safer.”
