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.

It feels a bit fragile, i wonder what would happen if some terrorist group were to put some explosives in a pillar.
