France Completes The World’s Tallest Bridge

Really happy to know that France completed the World’s Tallest Bridge. The bridge looks really cool and unbelievably tall! Wow, maybe it should be taken as the World’s Eighth Wonder! Who knows?

I wonder how much of cement in used in jsut making those sky-high pillars? Those might me astronomical units *wow*!

Millau Bridge – The World’s Tallest Bridge!

Below is an article about the completion of the bridge:

The bridge over the River Tarn in the Massif Central mountains will carry vehicles across a 2.5km (1.5 miles) valley at a height of 270m (885ft).

When finished, the highest pillar will stand at just over 340m (1,115ft) tall.

The Millau bridge is expected to open for traffic by the end of the year, completing a new motorway link between Paris and the Mediterranean.

Once its pylons and giant suspension cables are in place, the structure will be higher than the Eiffel Tower, which reaches 343m.

Would you want to drive a car over the bridge, dued to open this year end? I would like so, but the height might scare daylight out of me!
