Is it true Eshima Ohashi is the most extreme flyover in the World?

Eshima Ohashi Bridge is a two lane concrete road bridge connecting the city of Matsue in Shimane Prefecture with Sakaiminato in Tottori Prefecture in Japan. With a length of 1.7 km and a width of 11.7 meters, this is the world's largest rigid frame bridge, and also the third largest bridge in the world.
