The Tallest Bridge
There are so many Guinness records for the tallest entities such as tallest man,tallest woman,tallest building etc.
when it comes to bridges which one will line up with the tallest tag?
The world tallest Bridge is 'Millau Viaduct' which is a part of the A75 road that links the Paris with Barcelona, France.
The bridge is 343 meters high and its highest point is more higher than the Eiffel Tower as well.
The total Cost of the project was AUD $ 525 million.
This project has the most highest bridge piers in the world. Above picture shows the constriction of such a pier.
This cable stay bridge has a total length of 2.5km and it crosses the Tarn River.
At a time, when I was having my doubts of my choice of undergraduate studies in the uni, my lost interest triggered back with double power, after seen a presentation of a bridge construction similar to above. Still I can still feel the same and runs it in my veins when I am going through above pictures...........
