Incredibly Steep Bridge in Japan Looks Like a Thrilling Roller Coaster for Drivers
This bridge, the Eshima Ohashi bridge, is definitely unique. As you probably already noticed, the bridge has a steep incline on both sides, and if you were to use a less technical description, you’d say that it looks like rollercoasters as opposed to a bridge. It was designed this way not just to be the largest rigid frame bridge in Japan, (and third largest in the world), but because the river which it sits upon is used heavily by boats and other ships.
The bridge is forty-four metres tall, and the incline is very steep at 5.1 percent on one side and 6.1 percent on the other side. This makes it one of the most ingenious bridges in the world in terms of its architectural design, but also one of the most frightening to look at, as we sure you will agree!
