Millau Viaduct - World's Highest Bridge

This is definitely one of the amazing architectures if you know the history of this architectures. The view from the bridge is so breath taking. I would really love to visit to France one day. This will be one of the place I want to go in France.

The Millau Viaduct (French: le Viaduc de Millau) is a large cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the River Tarn near Millau in southern France. Designed by English architect Norman Foster and French bridge engineer Michel Virlogeux, it is the tallest vehicular bridge in the world, with one mast’s summit at 343 metres (1,125 ft)—slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower and only 38 m (125 ft) shorter than the Empire State Building. The viaduct is part of the A75-A71 autoroute axis from Paris to Béziers. It was formally dedicated on 14 December 2004 and opened to traffic two days later.

    I saw the construction documentary on this… very very impressed indeed. It’s funny how they make the daily tourists and visitors to the site guess if it’s a bridge or viaduct.

    I’m wondering if any sky diver will attempt the first jump over the tallest viaduct.
