The state, commonwealth and local governments are investing $69.73 million. The project includes upgrades to the runway and a new passenger terminal, allowing bigger planes access. Interstate scheduled flights are a key aim with Asian internation- al links a longer term goal. Terminal design is intended to make an “entry statement that em- bodies the character of the South West”. Also in the project is upgrading of internal roads, expanded parking, infrastructure to support the devel- opment of freight and commercial opportunities, upgraded aeronauti- cal ground lighting and a new gener- al aviation precinct. Trafalgar Bridge interactive lighting, photo City of Perth Trafalgar Bridge enhanced by new interactive lighting THERE’s something almost magical about lit-up city bridges, especially when the lighting system is interac- tive and can be changed to suit sea- sonal festivities, events or special occasions. Perth has installed a next-gener- ation lighting system on the Trafal- gar Bridge whose design allows for dramatic scope. The East Perth pedestrian bridge, linking Trafalgar Rd and Henry Lawson Walk has been lit for some years but with a more basic deco- rative format that was looking tired. Its new lighting scheme can be viewed widely and is in line with Perth’s policy of adding light and colour where possible, including in some trees. Themes – such as green and gold for Australia Day – are pre-loaded while council staff are able to easily create customised designs readily through a computer link.
