Orange cables...



lit up blue at night!
Feel bad quoting a post this old however I think his really would be great, lots of cities put extensive lights on their bridges, Toronto even has them on the Prince Edward Viaduct so it surprises me that Vancouver with its numerous bridges does not have more. In particular the new Port Mann would look very interesting if LEDs were run up the towers and along the cables.

You couldn't put lights ON the cables because it would interfere with the snow removal collars. But you could certainly do something with lights directed from above and below.

Especially something like the Port Mann and potentially the new Patullo, such massive structures having lights to show them off makes sense.

Orange cables would be a great homage to the iconic orange arc of the original Pattullo Bridge.

Hopefully once this and GM are done they move the focus to the North Shore, they do not have a single modern bridge connection!
