Monday Commuters Delighted by London Bridge’s Transformation into Rainbow Brick Road

Commuters in London were treated to a delightfully colorful surprise this morning when the London Bridge was turned into a rainbow pathway stretching 300 meters across the Thames River.

The cheery installation was the work of BBC 1 presenter Gemma Cairney and Spark Your City, a global movement “dedicated to spark joy in everyday city life.” Cairney and her collaborators were up bright and early to make sure the rainbow road was in place by the time commuters were on their way to work. With the colorful tiles, a multihued outfit, free bouquets of flowers, and a sign inviting people to “Love Mondays,” Cairney was a welcome beam of sunshine to Londoners on this gray, rainy morning.

Unfortunately, the rainbow carpet had to be removed earlier this afternoon due to strong winds, but Spark Your City will be back in London with a mysteriously titled “Urban Jungle” surprise on August 12!
