Millennium Bridge

The Millennium Bridge was opened by The Queen in June 2000, its 320m-long structure was designed by the architect Norman Foster with sculptor Sir Anthony Caro and engineers Arup. As a pedestrian-only steel suspension bridge it was designed with a minimal profile and conceived as a "blade of light" across the Thames. The use of a "lateral suspension" system allowed the bridge to be built without tall supporting columns.

The bridge is notoriously nicknamed the 'wobbly bridge' as a result of the excessive sideways movement created by the tens of thousands of people crossed the bridge on its opening day. The structure was closed to allow the fitting of dampers and reopened in 2002.
