I Think You get Airline Fequent Flier Miles If You drive This Bridge…..

The Millau viaduct is part of the new E11 expressway connecting Paris and Barcelona and
the overall height will be an impressive 336 meters, making this the highest bridge in
the world.

gee dave, when it said "is part of the new E11 expressway connecting Paris and Barcelona" that kind of means it's on the road that connects the two cities. Read, then post!

Yes, the bridge connects the highway between Paris and Barcelona. Hence the "PART OF THE new E11 expressway connecting Paris and Barcelona".

Yes, geniuses, but WHERE is this damned bridge??? From the looks of the countryside, I'd say it's in Spain (somewhere). Anyone know what town this is near?

It is near Millau, France, in the south of France. Hence, the name Millau Viaduct...genius...

Visited Millau before the bridge. The view from the bus coming down the winding mountain road was amazing, its a beautiful countryside with a river. This picture of the bridge is great...good job!

I guess driving down the hill, across the valley and up the other side would not have been as much fun.

Thanks, SaulB, but I was hoping to avoid going to an Atlas. When I said "what town is it near?", I meant a place a normal person would know. For the rest of us, the bridge is located between Cahors and Nimes almost due south of Paris just below the d'Aubrac mountain chain (part of the Masif Central), approximately 150 km from the Spanish border.

So "normal people" are more likely to know where Cahors and Nimes are than Milau? Genius?

Obviously not for numbskulls like you, JohnDFabian. BTW, Millau is spelled with two Ls. And France is located west of Germany, south of England, and north of Spain. I'll let you locate Europe on your own.

For the benefit of The Disordered Cat, the whole reason that this bridge was built in the first place was to alleviate the need to drive into the valley.

All traffic, including trucks, between France and Spain take the E11 route - and in the summer, the smog there was unbearable, as were the traffic jams.

Quite a feat of engineering if you ask me.

Used to live some 60Km's from there (Mende), and going to, say, Narbonne (Seaside) was a NO-GO in the summer: 4hr. of traffic jams, just to wind down in the valley on the 'sauveterre' side of Millau, through centre (Allmost) of Millau, and back up to the Larzac plateau.

Now you do the same thing in just 25 minutes... (and a 6 euros lighter purse...)

The bridge itself is part of the A75 autoroute, connecting (roughly) Clermont-Ferrand and Montpellier: This it (most certainly, never seen anything like that) the most winding expressway of the world (at least of France.. ): At some parts the speed limit is 70 km/h, as opposed to the 130 Km/h on a normal expressway.

Hello,
First of all Paris is in the upper north part of France, and Barcelona is in the middle of Spain, as for me, it is not possible to build a bridge from Paris to Barcelona. I believe the bridge they're talking about is over the Pyrnenees, and will cut time travel through the south of France, but will not go all of the way to Paris, just the lower middle region.
