Millennium Bridge


The Millennium Bridge was the first new bridge built over the River Thames since Tower Bridge was completed in 1894 and it was the first bridge built strictly for pedestrians.  Connecting London, near St. Paul's Cathedral with  the Tate Modern Art Museum on bankside,  the bridge initially opened on June 10, 2001 but due to huge crowds crossing the bridge creating an uncomfortable sway, the bridge was closed.  It reopened on February 27, 2002 after extensive investigations and modifications were carried out to resolve the sway of the bridge.
