The restoration and repair project saw the historical design features of the bridge enhanced using an approved bespoke lighting design.
The public lighting works included integrated handrail lighting and spotlights with the addition of 23 discreet Mayfower Internal Nodes to control the lighting outputs of footpath lanterns and handrail trip-lights as well as RGB spotlights and architectural
lighting across the bridge and under the archways. These are controlled by three Mayfower Sub Masters, fitted at various locations around the site. Colour changing functionality will be accessible through the CMS Back Office, with DALI commands transmitted
through the existing Mayflower Lighting Network to the Internal Nodes.
Once received, the Nodes will send scene commands to the RGB controllers fitted inside the luminaires – displaying a choice of 1 of 16 pre-set colour scenes.
The Shakey Bridge was officially opened by Cork’s Lord Mayor.
