Bridge is taller than the Eifell Tower. Truly a spectacular sight. Another engineering feat. Wonder what is next, with the tallest tower in Dubai
coming up etc.
MILLAU, France (Reuters) -- President Jacques Chirac has inaugurated the world's highest bridge, a creation taller than the Eiffel Tower, longer than
the Champs Elysees and designed to end a traffic bottleneck in southern France.
Conceived by British architect Norman Foster, the slender white viaduct in the picturesque Tarn Valley will provide a new motorway link between Paris
and the Spanish border, easing congestion in the Rhone valley during the busy summer months.
