Click Green reported

London's iconic Tower Bridge is to undergo an eco makeover in time for next year's Olympic Games with the installation of a new energy-efficient lighting system.

As well as helping to cut carbon and reduce energy costs, the project will enhance this global icon's architectural features at night.

The Mayor of London has announced the deal yesterday between City Hall, City of London Corporation, EDF and GE to upgrade the bridge with the state-of-the-art lighting.

Tower Bridge is one of the world's most instantly recognisable landmarks and has recently undergone major re-painting. A funding deal has now been brokered by the Mayor Boris Johnson, between the bridge owners, City of London Corporation, London 2012 Sustainability partners EDF and GE to upgrade the famous structure's 25-year old lighting system.
