Millau Viaduct

                Millau viaduct

Millau Viaduct is the most amazing bridge in the world. The Millau Viaduct is located in southern France. It was designed by a French bridge engineer Michel Virlogeux. He worked closely with British architect Norman Foster.

The bridge was 245 metres long and 2.5 KM. They built the bridge on a 3 percent slope to make the drivers feel more comfortable. At the highest point of the bridge is 343 that is 23 metres taller than the Eiffel Tower.

The bridge opened on the 14 December 2004. I the first year it carried 4,430,000 vehicles. Many more than it had been estimated. The bridge is guaranteed to remain in good condition for 120 years.
