UK - London - Millennium Bridge - blue

One other one from the archives. Taken on the day Norman Fosters Millennium Bridge opened, I received to stroll throughout it while it was nonetheless ‘wobbly’. In case you ask me it was nice enjoyable and it ought to have been saved like that.

From Wikipedia : "The Millennium Bridge, formally often called the London Millennium Footbridge, is a metal suspension bridge for pedestrians crossing the River Thames in London, England, linking Bankside with the Metropolis. It’s situated between Southwark Bridge (downstream) and Blackfriars Railway Bridge (upstream). The bridge is owned and maintained by the Bridge Home Estates, a charitable belief overseen by the Metropolis of London Company. Development of the bridge started in 1998, with the opening on 10 June 2000.

Londoners nicknamed the bridge the "Wobbly Bridge" after members in a charity stroll on behalf of Save the Youngsters to open the bridge felt an surprising, and, for some, uncomfortable, swaying movement on the primary two days after the bridge opened. The bridge was closed later that day, and after two days of restricted entry the bridge was closed for nearly two years whereas modifications have been made to remove the wobble completely. It was reopened in 2002."
