Centenary Viaduct was a great project to be involved in although it nearly never happened as securing funding for this ambitious scheme was quite a challenge. In the end it received funding from STV through the 'People's Millions’ initiative, winning a substantial amount of the vote that week.
The scheme uses gobo projectors, mounted in specially commissioned enclosures to shine artwork in light, created by local schools light onto the bridge surfaces. Given that this is a busy junction with the East Coast main line atop the viaduct it was important that no light escaped the bridge surfaces. Using specialist targeting devices the shaped projection slides complete with artwork were made and this concept came to life to great plaudits from the local and national press, especially after the theme was changed to the poppy as an act of remembrance that year.
