Customer challenge


The Meydan bridge is an architectural marvel. Connecting the Meydan hotel to the main road, its undulating wave form and striking construction are seen by millions every year. Could light turn the structure into a modern landmark for the Dubai World Cup in March?

Color LED lighting creates a conspicuous result at Meydan, Dubai

The right lighting


The Meydan Bridge and its smaller sister, the Royal Bridge, are important assets to Meydan city. Every year when the Dubai World cup is held, Royal family members and other VIPs use them to access the racetrack. Philips was tasked with illuminating the Meydan Bridge so that it would serve as a royal welcome and become an architectural landmark.


The specific requirements were for the bridge to be illuminated with blue light, and for the system to be maintenance-free. To achieve this, we customized eColor Graze Powercore fixtures with blue LEDS.
A complete study of the drawings and site was done, and it was concluded that the 2ft product would perfectly match the undulations of the bridge.


Following the installation of the fixtures, the bridge has become a visual feast that can be seen from miles away. The blue light perfectly complements and enhances the striking shape of the bridge with a continuous line of light.

Following the installation on the Meydan bridge, company managers asked us to perform the same setup on the Royal Bridge. Philips supplied the same product and installation was completed within six weeks.
