Bridge light shows – your views?

How do you feel about the new LED light shows on the Harbour Bridge? The St Mary’s Bay Association intends to discuss with Vector the number of shows planned and also the midnight close down. A few members have suggested the light shows should finish at 10pm. If you have a view, do let us know.

Vector is planning approximately 20 shows annually. Since the launch to celebrate Auckland Anniversary Day on January 27, the light shows have played on Waitangi Day and also during the week of the Pride Festival. The next shows will be 8.30 to midnight between March 1-5 to celebrate Chinese New Year and the Year of the Dog.

The light shows are part of a 10-year smart energy partnership between Vector and Auckland Council. Each of the 90,000 LED lights, which can be programmed individually, are powered from the energy created by 248 solar panels on North Wharf.
