Colour lights up the way along Rhyl’s Promenade
A scheme involving the upgrade of existing lighting on Rhyl Promenade has now been completed.
The existing lighting on the clock tower roundabout and entrance to the gardens of remembrance has been fitted with a more energy and maintenance efficient LED coloured feature lighting. This will bring it in line with existing lighting schemes that are already in place within the promenade shelters and the Sky Tower.
The project also sees the introduction of new coloured feature lighting to the adjacent waterfall and floral features either side of the entrance to the underground car park.
Councillor Tony Thomas, Lead Member for Housing, Regulation and the Environment said: “We’re delighted about the installation of the lighting schemes along the promenade and it is great to see it reach its completion.
“We can now celebrate national events such as Geraint Thomas winning the Tour de France recently when Pont y Ddraig was lit up yellow to mark the event.
“The scheme is part of the ongoing work to revitalise the seafront in Rhyl and also part of our work to enhance the environment in Denbighshire, making it a fantastic place to live and visit.”
Rhyl Mayor Councillor Mrs Win Mullen-James said: “The promenade shelters, Sky Tower, and Pavilion Theatre provide a splash of colour and are a wonderful backdrop to the waterfront. We were keen to bring the rest of the area into line to showcase Rhyl by night. Bringing the waterfall and floral features on board, along with the remembrance gardens, will really set the town off.
“These changes also enable us to further celebrate special occasions. Working with Denbighshire, the Town Council has lit up the town to mark HM The Queen’s 90th birthday and, more recently, to commemorate 100 years of women being given the right to vote with lighting schemes chosen to reflect these national occasions. As a result of this new, joint project Rhyl will now enjoy the sea by day and a sea of colour at night.”
The project has been jointly funded by Rhyl Town Council and Denbighshire County Council Streetscene and has been undertaken by the Denbighshire Street Lighting and Rhyl Pavilion Theatre Technical teams.
