According to British media reports, this week, the City of London voted to allow the start of the "illuminate the river project", which will install new lighting on six bridges on the Thames, when the most famous bridges in London will be replaced On the "new install".
From the Albert Bridge to the Tower Bridge, the lighting design of each bridge will be used to present the history of each bridge.
The London City Bridge is managed by Bridge House Estates, including the Millennium Bridge, Blackfriars, Southwark, London Bridge and Tower Bridge.
The project will be designed by American lighting artist Leo Villareal and London architect Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, who demonstrated their lighting solutions in 2016 and won an international competition to defeat 105 entries worldwide.
The team's concept uses the latest LED technology, and the design is softer than current decorative lighting. The project is expected to reduce existing energy consumption by 50% and reduce future maintenance costs.
The cost of the project is about £20 million, and the “Illuminating River Project” has been raised through trusts and philanthropists, and work will begin in phases between 2019 and 2022.
Chris Hayward, chairman of the City of London Planning and Transportation Committee, said the project is one of the world's largest free public art facilities and he is pleased that the project is about to be realized.
