Tradeston Bridge lighting upgrade signals a brighter future for Glasgow’s Clydeside

    March 29, 2022

    Signify has enhanced Glasgow’s Tradeston Bridge with dynamic, sustainable, connected lighting.


    • Bespoke lighting project combines vibrant, energy-efficient Color Kinetics LEDs with Interact connected lighting platform to create dynamic light shows
    • Project is part in the Glasgow Region City Deal investment for the Clyde Waterfront and contributes regeneration, place quality and connectivity to the local area.


    Guildford, UK–  Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, has enhanced Glasgow’s Tradeston Bridge with dynamic, sustainable, connected lighting. The newly illuminated pedestrian and cycle bridge spans the river Clyde, connecting the Tradeston and Broomielaw districts, and was seen as part of the backdrop to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) last year.


    The lighting project was delivered by Glasgow City Council as part of the City Deal ‘Clyde Waterfront and West End Innovation Quarter’ programme, which shall deliver £113.9M capital investment and shall regenerate the river corridor as a desirable urban quarter that attracts jobs, investment and contributes to regional economic growth. The newly illuminated bridge will aid the regeneration of Tradeston, connecting the new Barclays Glasgow Campus to the city’s financial district on the West side of the city centre, encouraging increased footfall on the bridge, attractiveness of the area for businesses, citizens and visitors and in turn boosting the local economy.


    A fresh new lighting design complements the bridge’s eye-catching, wave-like structure and form. The handrail has been fitted with custom stanchion lighting using Color Kinetics high-performance professional LED lighting products from Signify. The system is connected to Signify’s Interact Landmark software application, which controls the lights from a central dashboard and offers the ability to monitor and manage performance and outages from a single, secure dashboard.


    The entire project has been delivered in partnership with Lightways (Contractors) Ltd who are specialists in providing all types of exterior lighting throughout Scotland. The project includes a five-year lifecycle package, managed through Interact Landmark Lighting Asset Management that enables remote and on-site maintenance, along with energy savings through regular system optimisation. Interact Landmark Scene Management provides the ability to programme and manage dynamic light shows remotely, enabling the scene to be changed to suit the season, festival, or event.
