The City’s Culture Heritage and Libraries Committee “saw the light ” in early February.

This £10m project which is already 50% funded, will link all central London river bridges from Putney to Tower in a top designer lighting scheme.

The aim is to enhance the attraction of London and its river for visitors businesses and workers.  One of the major funders to date has been the Rothschild Foundation. It is hoped to open the scheme in phases from later this year.
