Millau Viaduct - France

Millau Viaduct

The Millau Viaduct is the tallest bridge in the world, with the central pillar standing 343m above the valley floor.  Built to cross the vast Tarn Gorge at the town of Millau, the bridge saves almost an hour off the steep journey down the cliff and horrendous traffic jams through the town.

From the viewing platform at the service station on the north side of the bridge, the bridge's size can really be appreciated.  Several of the towers are taller than the Eiffel Tower, making this the tallest structure in France, and the deck of the bridge lies higher than the top observation deck of the tower.
