The world’s steepest residential road is in New Zealand.

Baldwin Street wasn’t intended to be so steep; the town roads were laid out in a grid by planners in London who had no consideration for the terrain and placed it up the side of a hill.

At its steepest, the slope has a 35% gradient, meaning for every 9.3 feet you travel, the elevation changes by 3 feet.
