This bridge is so steep it’s like a rollercoaster – Here’s what it’s like to drive down it


The Eshima Ohashi bridge in Japan is the third largest bridge of its kind in the entire world. The steep slope is designed so that ships can pass through it without disturbing traffic.


The slope has a gradient of 6.1 per cent on one side and 5.1 per cent on the other, which is why many people compare it to a roller coaster.


The bridge is a mile across Lake Nakaumi, linking the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato. From certain angles the incline looks incredibly steep and dangerous, with spectacular views from the top!


Take a look at the video below, that takes a drive along the 1 mile bridge. That doesn’t look too intimidating does it?
