    It’s the Millau Viaduct :
    – The highest pylons in the world
    – The highest mast in the world
    – The highest road bridge deck in the world

    Something must be wrong with me, I’m never impressed by things like that.

    I retired just before the Koreans were to take me to Singapore to run a tunneling machine. Singapore is beautiful, but not to stay or work.

    Living in Minneapolis and having driven over the I-35W bridge about a half hour before it fell, I’m just imagining what it would be like to be driving on that bridge and realizing that it was collapsing. Freaky thought.

    Suicides: unlikely, there’s no footpath. Well, there is, but it’s locked and blocked. Plus, unless you’re a mountaineer, getting there means a long car trip. The deck carries the A6 autoroute from Paris to the Occitane coast, and the two nearest junctions (on-ramps) are some miles off.

    Designed by a Brit, Lord Foster.

    Interesting build: once the pylons were in place, the road deck was built yard-by-yard on each plateau and then pushed out, hydraulically, from each side until the assembled roads met in the middle.
