I think what you’re seeing is new concrete in the turn section, new blacktop where it drops off/load and further down faded older blacktop.
Yeah I know what I'm seeing 😆

But my question was more why? I understand the new blacktop should fade over time and get more in line with the old, but why is the turn section that light great concrete and not also blacktop?

I would guess b/c of the turning in that area the tram tires would tear up the blacktop vs concrete more so over time.
This ^^^

Concrete is a much more durable road material than asphalt and that turn will see a lot more in the way of wear and tear than a straightaway would.

So do we know what kind of lighting will be in this new entrance? I assume they are destroying the up lighting that is there, so I wonder what they will put in to replace it. The concept art didn't show much from what I could see in the way of lighting. (except for a sparkling Space ship earth)
