The sound of rumbling of tyres on busy British roads is nothing new but UK motorists will soon hear music they have created as they drive over a northern bridge.
For the first time in the UK, drivers will be able to play music outside their cars as new musical strips are being added to Humber Bridge.
Car-activated rumble strips will play a tune when the 120,000 cars drive over the Grade I listed bridge near Hull each week.
It’s an attempt to transform the notorious infrastructure into a tourist attraction - the bridge’s board hopes it will bring in an extra 400,000 visitors a year.
Although the council is yet to pick the winning melody, the strips could be ready and installed on the crossing over the river Humber by 2022.
The bridge is claiming a UK first in creating a musical roads, but they have been toyed with before - a road in Lancaster, California attempted a similar feat in 2017 and failed.
The grooves installed in the US were specifically designed to play Rossini’s William Tell Overture when a cars drove over them.
However when they were added to the road, they were spaced too closely together and created a jingle that was terribly out of tune.
