The 25-year-old lights on London’s iconic Tower Bridge are to be replaced a new energy efficient system after the plans were given final planning and listed building consent this week. Thanks to a funding deal agreed between the Mayor of London, City of London Corporation and London 2012 sponsors EDF and GE, the new LED lighting system will be installed in time for the Olympic Games next summer. The deal, which was first announced in April this year, has taken six months to ratify and obtain planning permissions from Southwark Council and the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The state of the art system will cut energy consumption for lighting the bridge by 40% and replace the static lights with ones that can vary in colour and intensity.
