This major public art commission on the River Clyde complements the lighting of other bridges. The work was carried out under Glasgow City Council's lighting strategy which aims to enhance the environment by using light innovatively.

Colour changing lights highlight the underside of the elegant central span of the Kingston Bridge and reflect in the water. Sequencing is linked to traffic patterns on the bridge and tide levels.

Current status:

The project is complete.


Completed July 2005.
