French President Jacques Chirac today inaugurated the worlds tallest road bridge in Millau, France. Its tallest pillar is 1,122ft high and bridge runs for 1.6 miles through the Massif Central mountains and was designed by British architect Norman Foster.

Along with structures like the proposed Burj Tower in Dubai and the power tower in Australia, it's good to see we're still trying to push the boundaries of design. It is quite an incredible looking bridge. I wouldn't mind taking a drive over it one day.

Wow, that is impressive. I bet you get some amazing views off that bridge, the photos are nice in the article too.

Seeing as I live so close to France and intend going over next summer for a couple of weeks fishing, I might make the trip to the bridge.

Yeah! This structure looks marvelous! Must be incredible view from the bridge, I wonder if is it possible to stop somewhere in the middle?
