The "Starpath" could one day replace streetlamps as a cheaper and more energy-efficient form of lighting, or be used for cycle lanes.

The technology is being used at Christ's Pieces and the city council has said it could adopt the path elsewhere.

The system has been developed by Pro-Teq Surfacing in Surrey.
