Tarmac has laid the first recycled rubber road in London.

Approximately 100 recycled tyres have been mixed into the road surface on Canrobert Street in Bethnal Green as part of the plan to reduce landfill and incineration waste.

Tower Hamlets Council approved the new type of surface, noting it would offer a range of benefits - the new material means roads can be re-opened quicker, up to 10% less carbon dioxide emissions are generated, site safety is improved and toxic fumes are reduced.
