Milliau Viaduct, highest vehicle bridge in the world

You might think there’s nothing special about this bridge, and Milliau Viaduct is indeed one of the more common-looking bridges, but the mere fact that it’s slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower makes it special.

Opened to traffic in December of 2004, Milliau Viaduct holds the current record for the world’s tallest vehicular bridge in the world, standing at an amazing 343 meters in its highest point, which makes it only 38 meters shorter than the Empire State Building. The bridge is set in Milliau, France is a part of the A75-A71 autorute from Paris to Beziers and it most likely lose its position as highest bridge deck in the world, when Chenab Bridge is completed in 209, in India, so we thought we’d mention it until then.
