Street Light

The LED lights along the Watershed pedestrian walkway are lit with uncovered and intense blue white LED lights (no yellow anti-glare filter). LED lights work by largely emitting the blue part of the light spectrum. This is a medically recognised migraine trigger, and with disabled people like myself the blue/ white LED lights are guaranteed to cause a serious amount of immediate instant pain with rather nasty after effects. In essence it has become a no go area for people like myself who suffer with the disability of chronic photosensitive migraine, and I have no choice but to let you know they are causing me a serious problem. I find that as a disabled person, the instant intense pain I get from these LED lights makes the entire walkway of the Watershed a no go area for me because my disability. So sadly The Watershed Walkway is not inclusive to me anymore because of my disability, so I do feel isolated from the venue now. I am very disappointed as it ruined an evening out that I was really looking forward to, and subsequently I was ill for the rest of the evening because of the painful lighting. I am a visitor to this venue, but sadly I cannot go here anymore. Is there anything that can be done to help me attend the Watershed again in the future?
