The Erasmus Bridge at Rotterdam would be the highest bridge when you look at the top of the construct (139 meters). Not sure about which bridge has the highest bridge deck of The Netherlands. I suspect that it would be the Van Brienenoord at Rotterdam.

Most bridges in the Netherlands are over rivers, and typically have a clearance of about 15 - 20 meters. Maybe there is some viaduct in A79 which may be taller than that.

i think that the largest span is 185 m, the heighest point is 130 m pillars are too fat to be proportional with height of 185 m

Vilvoorde Viaduct, a big bottleneck in the Brussels beltway. It was build to overpass a railway, a canal and a factory (thats why it's so high) but the factory closed a few years ago.





Maintenance :

Wow that viaduct is only some 25 years old. This looks more like a structure that is 50 years old.

This is the result of absolutely no maintenance since it was built, combined with the severe weather in the mountain. Hopefully, it's just the final cement coating over the structure, which is damaged, not the main supporting structure... But still it looks sad.

I wonder what the exact opening date is. I know they started building here in 1984 but works were ceased in the late 1980's due to a lack of funding, and not to be restarted until the mid-late 1990's. It was opened to traffic around 1998-1999.

You're a bit wrong. The one opened in 1998-1999 is other viaduct between Pravets and Yablanitsa, which is also more narrow - without third lane - shoulder, and the two active lanes are 3,50 m wide instead of the standard 3,75 m.
Bebresh was opened in 1985 and is full-sized for highway.

Concrete over rebar is obviously too thin and of inferior quality. Even if completely without maintenance it should not fall off the structure in just 25 years.

Perhaps North Africa but not Africa.

Africa's highest bridge is the Bloukrans Bridge in the Western Cape of South Africa. It is 216m high. The following website http://highestbridges.com/wiki/index...oukrans_Bridge contains beautiful images. It is also the highest commercial bungee jump in the world.





The Longest road bridge (not elevated freeway) in South Africa is the Bethulie Bridge at 1152m
