Australia’s First Glow-In-The-Dark Footpath

Gosford is leading the way with Australia’s first glow path installed on a walkway under the railway line at Wyoming this week.

MP Lucy Wicks was one of the first to use the new path.

“It’s a fantastic initiative – the footpath goes underneath the railway line and will be used by students, commuters and people who need to safely cross the rail line.”

The path is made from a combination of aggregate and a natural non-toxic glow in the dark mineral, phosphorous zinc sulfide. The minerals absorb the ultraviolet light from sunlight and the path glows softly at night for 8-14 hours. The soft glow helps guide pedestrians and cyclists and improves connection to other footpaths servicing local bus stops, the High School, Shopping Centre and nearby parks.

It the first natural glow-in-the-dark footpath in Australia.
