Short notes on a tall bridge…

Filed under: — site admin @ 10:05 am

The Millaue Viaduct, the world’s tallest bridge, has opened to serve as a traffic conduit between Paris and the south of France. The structure, stretching over 1.6 miles with its tallest pillar standing 1,122 feet tall, literally stands above the clouds (streaming video available), and is 53 feet taller than the Eiffel Tower.

One can only hope that the brilliant civil engineering talent that has led to a nearly faultlessrecord for TGV operations has been in Millau.
