In order to help alien visitors to land their UFO's safely in the Netherlands, Martin Riebeek in collaboration with the Dutch city of Houten (near Utrecht) have imagined to create an UFO landing pad on the roundabouts at the exit of the A27 highway.

On the eastern roundabout, a UFO platform will be built with light green reflecting, artificial coating. In the middle, a big red "U" (for UFO) has the role to greet alien cultures politely.

On the western roundabout, the light of the six meter high traffic tower will change its colour as soon as traffic on the highway has low intensity. Then the UFOs will know that they can start their landing. The intermediate 300 meters will be lit with blue lights on both sides of the road, much like the ones at airports.
