The bridge is built up by 240 pillars and the city of Malmö requested an effect lighting of the bridge, the last one of the 14 bridges that goes over the inner ring way 1 around Malmö. The purpose with the new lighting is to make the bridge a local landmark for the commuters.
The first stage of the project was to lit up 80 of the 240 pillars. Custom-made brackets and vandalism protection has been developed by me together with Malmö City Technical Department.The second stage is the effect lighting – under the bridge, a stream goes and above that stream there is going to be water reflections. Over the cycle path, 2 squares is going to be projected to get a feeling of two lanternin-windows. To test these effects, a mock up on site was done. This part is going to be built in 2018.
