Perth Bridge has been re-lit as part of a £14 million investment to create high quality public spaces and lighting initiatives across the city.
Work began on July 8 and has been completed a week ahead of schedule.
Existing lighting on the bridge, in place for almost 30 years, was replaced with more energy efficient lighting. This reduces the scheme’s power consumption and running costs.
Perth City Centre councillor Andrew Parrott said: “I greatly welcome the city of light action plan and the intent to use lighting to highlight some of our iconic built environment in Perth as a way of enhancing the appearance of the city.”
He added: “Work is also going on to modernise our standard street lighting with modern more efficient fittings so that overall in the future there will be a reduction on the resource spent on lighting in the city.”
£5 million of the council’s overall budget is dedicated to the lighting plan. This follows on from the creation of the Lighting Action Plan.
The aim of this project is to emphasise Perth as being a young, vibrant and cultural city.
