Attractive proposition


I have recently returned from a holiday in British Columbia where I visited and walked across the Capilano suspension bridge, a 150m long pedestrian bridge over a deep gorge, and subject to movements of a very significantly greater amplitude than the Millennium bridge.

This is its major attraction, for which I paid the not inconsiderable sum of $45 for myself and family. Is the problem with the Millennium bridge one of marketing rather than engineering?
