It is a hill start to give even the most confident learner driver nightmares.

The Eshima Ohashi bridge in Japan – the third largest of its kind in the world – rises sharply so ships can pass underneath.

The concrete road bridge spans a mile across Lake Nakaumi, linking the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato.

The two-lane concrete road bridge stretches 1.7km or just over 1 mile long and has a width of 11.4 metres making it the largest rigid frame bridge in Japan and the third largest in the world. 


It's incredible slope, which has a gradient of 6.1 per cent on the Shimane Prefecture side and 5.1 per cent on the Tottori Prefecture side gives it a rollercoaster-like appearance. 

The unusual steep bridge was recently featured in a commercial for Daihatsu Motor Co.'s Tanto minivan to test the vehicle's durability.
