The Millau Bridge over the River Tarn
There was a good documentary on the construction of this on Discovery. It's located in southern France, and is the highest bridge in the world. It is a truly amazing piece of engineering, especially considering the method used to span the distance between the piers.
The red support struts (1 left and 2 right in photo) were removed following completion of the bridge.
The Millau Bridge over the River Tarn in the Massif Central mountains is more than 984 feet high - taller than the Eiffel Tower.
