From Dr. N.S.
Feel a little nervous about driving
across this bridge?  
 



There's something just
not right about driving



above the clouds.







The
Millau Viaduct is part of the



new E11 expressway connecting

Paris and Barcelona and features the




highest bridge piers ever constructed.

The tallest is 240 metres



(787 feet) high and the overall height

is an impressive 336 metres



(1102 feet), making this

the highest bridge in the world.




It's taller than the Eiffel Tower .  


Interestingly, the Millau Viaduct is




not straight. Why? It's because a

straight road could induce 



a floating sensation as


you drive across it. So, a slight curve




remedies that feeling.


The curve is 20km in range. Moreover,




the road has a light incline of 3% to

improve the visibility and reassure the



  driver.  
  An amazing
engineering feat!

  Slide the picture to the right/



left to see the whole bridge.  

What a view - 787 feet high!
