Would you be apprehensive about driving across this bridge?  
The Millau Viaduct is part of the new E11 expressway connecting Paris and Barcelona  
and features the  highest bridge piers ever constructed.
The tallest  is 240 meters (787 feet) high and the
overall height is an impressive 336 meters  (1102 feet),
making this bridge the highest bridge in the world.
  
It is taller than the Eiffel Tower.

Intriguingly, the Millau  Viaduct is not straight.
 A straight road could induce a sensation of floating for drivers,
which a slight curve remedies. The  curveis 20km in  range.
Moreover, the road has a light incline of 3% to improve  the
visibility and  reassure the driver.  
It is an amazing engineering feat!
