      I think the Millennium Bridge is a pretty cool looking bridge!

      Although, the wobbliness of it when it first opened isn’t at all ideal. To correct this, the bridge was modified and “dampers” were added (these are like shock absorbers) to control the movements and stop the swaying motion.

      Check out this (slightly scary) video of the wobbly bridge before and after the modifications! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2FaOJxWqLE
