Long Description:

 

Le pont des records:
L’ouvrage est actuellement:
Le pont routier le plus haut du monde avec l'ensemble pile-pylône le plus haut au monde (P2 : 343 m) et les deux piles les plus hautes au monde (P2=245 m et P3=221 m).
Son tablier qui culmine à 270 mètres au-dessus du Tarn est également le plus haut pour un ouvrage routier et le plus long pour un pont haubané (2 460 mètres).
L'ouvrage est composé de piles minces et dédoublées sur leur partie supérieure et d’un tablier métallique très fin avec seulement sept points d’appui au sol.
Le viaduc a permis de développer les activités commerciales et industrielles de la région aveyronnaise mais aussi permis de supprimer le "point noir" de Millau. Le tourisme autour du viaduc est très développé et sa construction a suscité l’intérêt de nombreuses personnalités politiques.
 
Bridge records:
The structure is currently:
The highest road bridge in the world with the whole-cell tower the tallest in the world (P2: 343 m) and two batteries of the highest in the world (P2 = P3 = 245 m and 221 m).
Her apron, which rises to 270 meters above the Tarn is also the highest for a road structure and the longest for a cable-stayed bridge (2460 meters).
The book is composed of thin piles and split on the upper part and a very fine steel deck with only seven points of support on the ground.
The viaduct has developed the commercial and industrial activities of the Aveyron region but also helped remove the "black spot" of Millau. Tourism around the viaduct is developed and its construction has attracted many politicians.
