This allows for a less steep incline = easier for vehicles to climb up.

Meant to slow the yielding traffic....

Cynical side says that is worth millions more in contracts than a straight shot. I'm not that cynical though. I'll stick with a safety issue.

I have seen the same thing when a bridge was built to cross a waterway with little space to gain elevation without a super steep ramp -
I'm left to think the engineers use some kind of grade limit when trying to reach a clearance height

They had to elevate it to go over the railroad tracks, but didn't want a steep decline that immediately ended at an intersection. The loop keeps speeds down prior to the intersection. I'm not sure where this is, but maybe they also get icy roads there.

Maybe they're lobbying the FIA for an F1 date and have started on a road course?

Look at the incline, and look at the large truck going up. It's much more beneficial for traffic flow to have that large circle with a gradual incline than it is a significant grade to the bridge, especially for truck traffic.
It also allows traffic to slow going to the cross road on the right from the "city" area on the left.

I'm surprised that you ain't able to figure that out for yourself.
