The Millau Viaduct is part of the new E11 expressway connecting
Paris and Barcelona and features the highest bridge piers ever
constructed. The tallest is 240 meters (787 feet) high and the
overall height is an impressive 336 meters (1102 feet), making this
the highest bridge in the world. It is taller than the Eiffel Tower .

Intriguingly, the Millau Viaduct is not straight. A straight road could induce
a sensation of floating for drivers, which a slight curve remedies. The curve
is 20km in range. Moreover, the road has a light incline of 3% to improve
the visibility and reassure the driver.
