Gladesville Bridge lit up for 50th Anniversary

From 1 to 5 October a luminous arch of 50 subtle colour fades stretched across Parramatta River as our lighting team lit up the Gladesville Bridge in celebration of its 50th Anniversary.

When opened on 2 October 1964 it was, at 1000 feet (305 metres) the longest span concrete arch bridge in the world. On the official ceremony held by RMS on 1 October the Bridge received an “Engineering Heritage International Marker” joining only three other Australian recipients of this prestigious international award which include the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Snowy Mountains Hydro Scheme and the West Australian Goldfields Water Supply. Applying high-efficiency LEDs, the lighting solution enhances the elegant structure and creates a night-time landmark with minimal daytime impact and will be used for future special events and projects by RMS.
