678

The Millau Viaduct is the tallest bridge in the world with one mast’s summit at 343.0 meters above the base of the structure. It is a cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the river Tarn near Millau in southern France.

The bridge was designed by the French structural engineer Michel Virlogeux and British architect Norman Foster. It was opened in 2004 to close the “missing link” on the A75 autoroute that connects Paris in the north to Perpignan in the south; the Millau Viaduct was the result of 17 years of ideas, proposals, and design that resulted in shaving 37 miles off the former route through the region.
