Tygum Park Bridge Handrail Lighting Project

The Tygum Park Bridge Handrail Lighting project aimed to enhance the bridge’s visibility and aesthetic appeal at night by integrating advanced lighting within the handrails. Drawing inspiration from Beenleigh’s iconic red bridge, the objective was to install environmentally friendly red lighting that minimises disruption to local wildlife. The customer specified the use of solar energy to power the lighting system, reflecting a commitment to sustainable and clean energy solutions. This approach aligns with broader environmental objectives by reducing the carbon footprint and promoting energy efficiency.
