Stretching higher than the Eiffel Tower, the VIADUC DE MILLAU Bridge is the world's tallest cable-stayed bridge, is a marvel of "art and architecture",was dedicated on Dec-14th-2005.
EIFFAGE the same firm that built the Eiffel Tower headed up the project team and built the four-lane bridge.
It bettered that, but not without obstacles. Miserable weather hit soon after Eiffage started construction on Oct. 10, 2001, suspending work. The government revised its time table,naming Jan. 10, 2005, as the opening day for vehicular traffic.
Eiffage beat that schedule by a month. After laying the first stone on Dec. 14, 2001, the company finished 36 months later. Vehicles began crossing the Millau Bridge on Dec. 16th, two days after its dedication. And the company spent "only" some US$520 million -
about HALF of the initial cost estimate - in completing the complex building process.
