FEATURED: “City Life is the Only Life” – 15AUG2012

The Millennium Bridge opened on 10 June 2000 as London’s first new Thames crossing in more than 100 years. £7m of its £18m cost came from the Millennium Commisison.

The 320m-long structure was designed by the architect Sir Norman Foster with sculptor Sir Anthony Caro and engineers Arup. It was opened by The Queen.

The bridge uses “lateral suspension” – an engineering innovation that allows suspension bridges to be built without tall supporting columns.
The designers predicted it would be a “blade of light” across the Thames, “an absolute statement of our capabilities at the beginning of the 21st century”.
