This Iconic bridge is a cable-stayed, masted structure, one of the finest structures built in this century. To accommodate the expansion and contraction of the concrete deck, each column splits into two thinner, more flexible columns below the roadway, forming an A-frame above deck level. The tapered form of the columns both expresses their structural loads and minimises their profile in elevation. The bridge enables motorists to take a drive through the sky, 270 metres (equivalent to the height of the Eiffel Tower) above the Tarn River valley for a 2.5 kilometre stretch through France’s Massif Central mountains.
