    The Millau Viaduct is a cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the river Tarn near Millau in southern France. Designed by the French structural engineer Michel Virlogeux and British architect Norman Foster, it is the tallest bridge in the world

    I am so often inspired by stunning architectural design, so made a specific point of visiting the Millau Viaduct in Summer 2011. It was so worth it.

    The "Viaduct de Millau" bridge in France. It's a cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the river Tarn near Millau in southern France. It is the tallest bridge in the world with one mast's summit at 1,125 feet above the base of the structure. The viaduct is part of the A75-A71 road from Paris to Montpellier. Amazing view also.

    The Millau Viaduct is the tallest bridge in the world and is located in southern France. It is 8200 feet long, has a tunnel at one end, and has a toll plaza that will be in place until 2080 - the year the bridge will supposedly be paid for. The speed limit on the bridge started out at 81 mph, but was lowered to 68 mph after too many cars were stopping to take pictures and causing accidents.

millau viaduct Had to cancel my trip to drive over this bridge just before moving from Germany. Someday....

Millau Viaduct, France. Looking down on clouds is to be expected from an airplane, but it’s a bit more unsettling in a car. Yet that’s often the sight when driving across this bridge, which is taller than the Eiffel Tower at its highest point. In fact, when it opened in 2004, it claimed the title of the world’s tallest vehicular bridge.

Millau Viaduct, France. Driven over this bridge on way to Spain. Fantastic views and visitor centre.

This is such a beautifully designed structure! #design #architecture #bridge

The tallest bridge in the world is the Millau Bridge in France. This stunning cable stayed vehicular bridge has one mast reaching a height of 1,125ft. The bridge crosses the valley of the river Tarn near Millau and on cloudy days the bridge appears to almost float on the clouds. It was designed by the English architect Lord Norman Foster, cost £272 million and was entirely privately financed. French President Jacques Chirac called the bridge ‘a miracle of equilibrium’.
