Bridge colour transformation

You may have noticed the Bolte Bridge looking greener than usual recently.

Normally lit up in white lights, the bridge was lit up in colour while Transurban tested its new LED lights in May.

According to Transurban head of public affairs Ayllie White, the new LED lights were 10 times more efficient than the old lights and were easier to maintain.

The 34 new lights weigh 50 kilograms each and sit on a platform under the bridge.

According to Ms White, the default colour for the bridge is silver white, but the new lights can be programmed to almost any colour.

She said Transurban was considering lighting up the bridge in colour for major city events and was currently working through the required arrangements and approvals.

Ms White said it was unlikely the bridge would be lit up in red during the AIDS 2014 conference this month due to time constraints.
