The Pearl River night cruise ship in Guangzhou allows passengers to enjoy the night scenery along both sides of the river bank. Behind the dazzling night scenery, light repairmen are the guardians of the city's dazzling glow.

At present, there are 10 river crossing bridges along the Guangzhou section of the Pearl River from east to west. There are hundreds of lights on these bridges, and the task of light maintenance is particularly tough and Guangzhou has formed an urban landscape lighting pattern. In order to achieve precise management, Guangzhou has established a smart control platform for urban night-scene lighting. Currently, all lighting fixtures are uniformly controlled. If problems are detected during online monitoring, maintenance can be quickly organized.

Light repairman Yang Maodi has been in the high-altitude work industry for many years. After making the necessary repairs to the lights he drops to the ground using his safety ropes. Yang said when he takes pictures of the night scenery of the Pearl River and tells his family that he repaired it, at that moment he feels very successful.
