Council approves $180K in lighting improvements to Griffiths overpass
Burnaby council has given the go-ahead for lighting improvements to the Griffiths pedestrian overpass which will include blue LED light fixtures to contrast with white metal halide lights.
The combination will "create the visual effect of a white iconic arch floating on a blue base," according to a city staff report. In addition to enhancing the aesthetics, it will create "a special landmark and unique gateway to visitors and returning residents when entering the city."
While the concept was approved in December with a $350,000 estimated cost, design work has refined the estimate to $180,000.
