News :

French prime minister Lionel Jospin has finally given the go-ahead for the £200M privately financed Millau viaduct in south east France. The 2.5km long eight span cable stay crossing was originally designed by Foster & Partners and French structural engineers EEG Sogelerg and SERF. It will carry the new A75 ParisBarcelona motorway across the gorge of the River Tarn. Main piers are up to 235m high - higher than the Eiffel Tower - with the cable stay masts rising a further 90m above the deck.

Construction by the joint venture concessionaire Eiffage is expected to start soon.
