25,000,000th vehicle crosses the Millau Viaduct !
On July 23rd, the Millau Viaduct, which celebrated the fifth anniversary of its opening last December, welcomed its 25,000,000th vehicle. The lorry driver, who works for the Transalliance transport company, was treated to a night in a prestigious Relais & Châteaux hotel and also received a book about the viaduct and a medal to commemorate the fifth anniversary of its opening.
When asked about the viaduct, which he uses regularly, this “special” driver said that he saved up to three hours of driving time during peak periods in the summer, thanks to the Eiffage construction.
It is easy to understand why the success of the Millau Viaduct, which also introduced a non-stop payment system for users as from June 18th, has continued since it was first opened!
