Harbor Bridge Lights

Auckland Harbour Bridge Lightshow

2degrees (or 2°), a mobile phone provider in New Zealand, has installed an interactive light show on the Auckland Harbour Bridge as a promotion and celebration of Auckland’s 175th Anniversary.

The lightshow plays every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8pm until 11.30pm, from 12 March to 25 April.  During the rest of the week the lights display in unchanging, solid colors, as shown in the picture above, and below.  Like the Sky Tower, the color of the lights is changed to suit any special occasions; the bridge was lit green on Saint Patrick‘s Day.

You can visit the 2degrees Play the Bridge page to watch live video of the interactive lightshow, which is synced to music.  You can request a song when the lightshow is not live, and view the might’s playlist when it is.

It isn’t clear what will happen with the Harbor Bridge lightshow after 25 April.  I think it’s a great addition to the Auckland skyline, maybe even comparable to the Sky Tower, and I think it would be a good permanent addition to the city of Auckland.
