The Millau Viaduct is an extremely complex structure, not only because of technical factors related to its size, height and length but also because of many others:

  • the selected route had to avoid damaging the natural site and landscapes,
  • its architecture,
  • the structure had to respect the environment (water, noise, air, waste, etc.),
  • impacts on local economic development,
  • safety (during construction and later the safety of users),
  • user comfort,
  • the operation and maintenance of the structure.
