Originally built in the 1920s the old Nicholson bridge had to be demolished in 2013 to make way for a new, longer bridge. The new bridge was opened in April 2014 to accommodate upgrades to the new rail tracks underneath, as well as fully restoring the link across the railway for vehicles and pedestrians.
It’s not hard to see why this new improved bridge has quickly become an attraction and icon in the local area. The architecturally designed bridge’s pillars are highlighted using CP9 floodlights that add just the right amount of light and presence.
The footpath was cleverly lit using the side-emitting strip lighting in a brilliant static blue. Lighting adjacent to the path at ground level gives pedestrians ample light but also doubles as a captivating feature of the design aesthetic.
