The bridge of Millau broke three world records.

First of all, it has the highest pylons in the world. Pylons P2 and P3 are 244.96 metres and 221.05 metres in height respectively. This broke the French record previously held by the Tulle and Verrières Viaducts (141 m), and the world record previously held by the Kochertal Viaduct in Germany, which is 181 metres.

It is also the highest bridge tower in the world: the mast atop pylon P2 peaks at 343 metres.

And third, it has the highest road bridge deck in Europe, 270 m above the Tarn River.
