Lighting the way to the preliminary finals

Gateway WA is showing its support of sport this upcoming weekend by lighting the Sky Ribbon panels of the Grand Gateway in the colours of home sides, West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers, for the AFL preliminary finals.

Sky Ribbon is an urban design feature of the project, made up of more than 220 aluminium panels that connect three bridge structures at the Grand Gateway interchange at Tonkin Highway / Leach Highway.

Travellers will see purple, white, yellow and blue lit panels line the way to and from Perth Airport, creating a memorable entry to and exit from the state as football fever grips the city.

To view the full effect of the lighting transform the Sky Ribbon’s palette of blue colours into the AFL team colours, watch our video here.
