Qatar’s blue road
The reason behind qatar blue roads is because The City Administration of Doha decided to battle the effect of heat in their capital city. Brainaics belive painting of roads blue will combat the effect of extreme heat and provide coolness to the atmosphere. The knowledge behind this is that regular dark asphalt has a temperature nearly 20-25 degree celsius higher than the actual simply because black attracts and radiates heat. The temperature could soar more if there are no tress on the sides.
However, According to the public works authority the purpose of painting these roads with a cool colour like blue is for it to help in reducing the Temperature by 15-20 degrees, thereby increasing the service of life of the coating and control global warming. For now, the city administration is only painting one of the central streets and have set up temperture sensors beside the painted road to monitor and know the temperature.
