At night, citizens can be amazed by a water curtain that is illuminated in rainbow colors, giving the impression that a waterfall is running right under the bridge. The iconic new landmark connects the city center of northern China's Yinchuan City with the Binhe New Area.

The Binhe Yellow River Bridge’s unique architectural design is complemented by Philips Color Kinetics technology that provides architectural lighting effects and gives the flexibility to change up to 16.7 million colors.  

Compared to conventional lighting, the new long-life LED system by Philips Lighting may deliver up to 75 percent energy savings as well as saving on operation and maintenance costs.
