Under Road Heating melts ice

Bus turning area cleared of snow by ICAX Solar Road Systems at Suffolk One - February 2012

The bus turning area has been given a second function:
collection of solar energy in summer.
This can be reversed in winter to melt snow landing on the surface.
This area is similar to the size of a Heathrow aircraft parking stand beneath a jumbo jet.

The concrete surface has been painted black to enhance its heat collection properties.
