Repairs to Foster and Partners' 'wobbly bridge'are on target after 2,000 volunteers helped with crowd testing last week. A passive damping system, which has been installed along the length of the bridge, appeared to be effective, with no sign of any wobbling.
Remedial work has added an additional £5 million to the cost of the £18 million Millennium Bridge. And though the wobble may have been cured, the nickname is likely to stick. Engineer Arup is not prepared to name a date for reopening, but rumours suggest it could be within weeks.
