Is it possible that the most impressive sight on route from Geneva to Chamonix isn’t actually found up in the mountains?
If you are an engineer you might consider the “Viaduc Egratz” to be just as impressive as the Mont-blanc! Â At 68 meters high at the highest point and nearly 1.5 km’s long it definitely catches peoples attention.
The Viaduc forms part of the main N205 Auto-route between Chamonix and Sallanches. Â Constructed in 1981 to provide a better alternative to the old road that hugs the cliff face allowingÂ improved traffic flow, especially in Winter and especially for Heavy Goods vehicles.
