Once in a while a project allows us the freedom to express the sheer joy and pleasure of light. Friday 13th October 2017 saw the spectacular grand opening of the new Mersey Gateway Bridge. It was our privilege to design a customised light show for the launch event: demonstrating the inherent flexibility of the permanent lighting scheme with a fabulous sequence of colours and movement, picking out the three concrete pylons, as fireworks filled the autumn sky.

For everyday use, the pylons will be lit in an elegant cool white, and will be reprogrammed with colours and effects tailored to particular civic and national and world events.
