Bike paths from plastic, why not?

The Netherlands is testing out bike paths made from plastic waste which are projected to hold up better than asphalt. Sections come premanufactured and are light so they are easily installed.

Why don’t we use this approach to expand our sideswalks to be multi-use paths so electric bikes and neighborhood electric vehicles could share the paths with pedestrians?
