dc.descriptionBridge linking north to the City of London near St. Paul's (Foster's "Gherkin" tower visible at right); A steel suspension bridge for pedestrians crossing the River Thames in London, linking Bankside with the City of London. Two days after the bridge opened, it was closed as pedestrians experienced a swaying motion (lateral vibration or resonant structural response). The bridge was closed for almost two years while modifications were made to eliminate the swaying entirely. It reopened in 2002. The southern end of the bridge is near the Globe theatre, the Bankside Gallery, and Tate Modern, the north end next to the City of London School below St Paul's Cathedral. The bridge alignment is such that a clear view of St Paul's south façade is presented from across the river, framed by the bridge supports.
