Worlds Highest Bridge

The worlds highest bridge Le Viaduc de Millau was inaugurated today.
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.

I would hate to be stuck in a traffic jam in the middle of that thing. Yikes.

This short film shows some workers raising one of the suspension towers. It gives a good view of the scale of the bridge.
