France - Viaduc de Millau 米洛高架橋


Stamp Issue : 2004-12-14 

Millau Viaduct (le Viaduc de Millau) is an enormous cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the River Tarn near Millau in southern France.
Common designed by the French structural engineer Michel Virlogeux and British architect Norman Foster, it is the tallest bridge in the world, with one mast's summit at 343 meters—slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower.
The viaduct is part of the A75-A71 autoroute axis from Paris to Montpellier. It was formally dedicated on 14 December 2004, inaugurated the day after and opened to traffic two days later.

Superb! Is there a specific bridge maximum card that is missing in your collection? Maybe there is no stamp yet with that bridge?
