traffic dependent bridge lighting


color changing lights highlight the underside of the central span of
the Kingston Bridge & reflect in the water. the light sequencing is
linked to real-time traffic patterns on the bridge & the tide
levels. sensors tracking traffic congestion activate swathes of light
on the bridge: yellow indicates a smooth flow, while red indicates a
traffic jam. at the same time, green & blue hues are synchronized
with the tide cycles of the Clyde River below. both systems run
concurrently, with the colors reflecting in the water offering a
double-sided wash of colored light.
