www.gettyimages.no/detail/photo/s%C3%B8lvesborg-cycling-b... The Sölvesborg Bridge has been awarded one of the ten most interesting bridges in the world 2013. The bridge is the longest bicycle and pedestrian bridge in Europe and special attention has been given to the spectacular lighting design. The Sölvesborg Bridge reaches across the bay of Sölvesborg, connecting the center of this Swedish town with a new housing district. Due to its spectacular design and lighting the Sölvesborg Bridge has given both residents of Sölvesborg and tourists a new exciting place to visit. People go for a walk or ride their bikes, they stop and look at the birdlife or they have pick nicks on the bridge, some even go fishing. In other words, the bridge functions as an urban space connecting urban life and nature – and it is the new landmark of the town. The bridge consists of a higher part made out of three characteristic vaults and a long wooden bridge for pedestrians. Due to the length of the bridge, at intervals along the way parts of the nature have been accentuated with light, for example trees and reeds are lit. Lighting is integrated in the railing on one side along the whole bridge. The impressive vaults are lit with coloured light and a subtle light underneath the bridge gives reflections in the water. The area around the bridge is a nature environment with a rich birdlife. The lighting has thus been made with respect for the birdlife and is inspired by the migration of the birds during the whole year. To give the bridge a unique night-time look, colour-changing luminaries have been used. The light can be controlled to avoid disturbing the area´s wildlife and the character of the bridge can change over the year and the night. A number of scenarios can be used for different events in the city. The aim with the lighting design has been to turn the bridge into a landmark during the dark hours and at the same time pay respect to the environment in which it is located. To prevent a barrier effect the fixtures are mounted on the outside of the bridge, with a glare shield to hide the light sources. The several light scenarios that can be chosen make the experience of the bridge non-static. The visitors feel that the bridge is dynamic and almost a living organism in the environment.
