    Could build that with my eyes closed

    Deluxe

    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.

    A wonderful structure, your photos suck.

    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.

    Nothing this awesome could be built in America today.

    So many people are going to commit suicide right there.

    Deluxe: i dunno, i think they need to build additional pylons…

    casemods: lol, suicide is cool, but base jumping is even cooler.

    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.
