A little bridge near and a big bridge far away

I know, another Millau Viaduct posting, but it's really beautiful and why ever not?

And of all the pictures of it I've looked at lately, I think that this is one of the nicest:

I found this here, but my French is not good. So, is the small bridge in the foreground, down in the valley, the Viaduc Lerouge, as the name of the .jpg file suggests? Don't know. And have to say: don't really care.

Anyway, whatever the name of the little bridge, could you possibly have a finer illustration of how bridge technology has come on since the age of stone arches or nothing? Leaps and bounds is the phrase that springs (ha!) to mind.
