The Bridge Closed:
In its static position the bridge is an exquisitely detailed horizontal form that celebrates the connection of the sea, horizon and sky. Light accentuates the long span by highlighting the structural ribs, in turn creating beautiful reflections in the water. Functional lighting for the road, cycle ways and pedestrian desks is fully integrated into the vehicle crash barriers and handrails. This concealed approach allows the lit effect to take complete precedence. A wave-form art screen made of stainless steel bars separates the pedestrian deck from the roadway on the fixed sections of the bridge. This screen is underlit using red LEDs to lend a soft glow to the pedestrian areas, and adds an extra dimension to the reflections on the water.
