    Millau Sky Bridge, Season 2 | Episode 3

    Richard Hammond reveals the engineering inspirations behind the tallest road bridge in the world - the Millau Viaduct, in France. He fires three quarters of a million volts from his finger tips to see how the power of lightning cut the steel structure quickly and accurately. The huge piers - 340 metres high, and which would look down on the Eiffel Tower - were positioned to millimetre accuracy with the system that located lost nuclear submarines. The longest road-deck in the world was launched along the top of the piers - and required the slipperiest substance known to man - Teflon; not even a gecko can stick to it. Steel cables hold the bridge in shape - born of a series of mining accidents. And to allow the bridge to expand a metre and a half in the summer sun the engineers turned to an ancient Celtic boat-building technique which can make concrete as bendy as wood.

Then the world's largest construction project it drew inspiration from a 13th Century Arab irrigation machine to create new land, and a WWII bomber and car suspension to make the terminal building light, airy and typhoon-proof. To reduce lost baggage designers turned to a bizarre Cold War spy device and a brass band was the proof of a crucial scientific principle which protects pilots from wind shear, all resulting in the new gateway to Asia.
