Journey across the Millau Viaduct

Our return route from England to Spain through France on this trip was via the E11/A75 which took us over the impressive Millau Viaduct on the 28th December 2011.

This was not the first occasion that we have travelled over it, but because we were ahead of schedule we had time to stop and take some photographs of this piece of magnificent engineering.

We stopped at the 'Aire du Viaduc de Millau' situated on the north side of the viaduct and climbed the footpath to the viewpoint.

As an experiment we decided to take a video of our drive over the bridge not expecting it to work-out, but here it is.

Edit 06.01.2012: The Baluarte bridge on the Mazatlan-Durango highway in Northern Mexico, standing at 403 metres has now been confirmed as the world's highest cable-stayed bridge, surpassing the Millau Viaduct.
