The road, with two lanes on each side, will cross the river at 270 meters above ground. At its highest point, the viaduct is even higher than the Eiffel Tower. Conceived by Norman Foster, this suspension bridge is supported by seven pylons, instead of the two that are common for this kind of construction.
