Central to the firework displays each year since 1999 is the lighting display on the Harbour Bridge known as the "Bridge Effect". Made of rope light attached to a panel and truss system, the display showcases a variety of symbols and other images related to the current year's theme. In the months leading up to 31 December (usually from late October), the scaffolding and framework are clearly visible, as is the outline for the design, leaving Sydneysiders speculating as to how the effect is to be realised. The Bridge Effect has been designed by Brian Thomson since (at least) 2006, with the lighting designed by Mark Hammer since 2008.
