If at the latter go out after dark. The bridge itself is not lit but the car headlamps show up and it looks like a procession of flying saucers going across the sky !
Hi Ive beem over the bridge several times and othe paege points, Im 7m long 3,5 high over 3.5 t and have always been classed as a 2.
Sorry to be a smart arse but the bridge is brill
I am in the money saving camp too - 58 euro return is about 250 miles worth of diesel.
In terms of time factor, Google map advises
Clermont Ferrand - Lodeve - toll free = 179 miles, 3 hours 26 minutes.
Clermont Ferrand - Lodeve, paying for the bridge = 174 miles and 3 hours 10 minutes.
Lodeve is just off the A75 south of Millau. So it seems leaving the motorway will cost you 16 minutes, although I maintain my 30 minutes. So save 58 euro for half hours work! LOL. (Approx 20 euro for the under 3500 kg motorhomes)
|seanoo||i think i'll save my money, Ä29 for a small section of motorway is excessive even if it has a impressive viaduct in the middle of it! rather go into millau and spend it on a meal (or part of one) and get something for my dosh regards sean|
|Mrplodd||You can save time OR you can save money !!|
|seanoo||hi, thanks for the replys. hogan, i have some friends to visit en-route so clermont is the best way for me. the point i was arguing dougie is in all the years of driving around france i have never been charged class 4 anywhere before and never on the millau viaduct and i've crossed it a good few times. anyway i said i was arguing, i didnt say i was right!! now its clear to me what the cost is i wont gamble with it, through the town it is! luckily i still have the original 3.5 tonne chassis plate in the footwell so i showed them that and they let me through class 2 why dont they ever charge us class 4 on the motorways if that is what we are when over 3.5 tonne. all the best sean|
I have gone through Millau without any delay. I estimate the extra tme is 30 minutes.
|hogan||Why that route ? Try bielsa or somport tunnel for a change.|
Drive off no pronlem. You will get a much better view of the bridge too. Stop in Millau itself as this is fine and take the road to Tarn Gorge as loads of campsites there (not sure in winter though)
