The new bridge is a fully integral concrete structure, supported by two sets of piers, and will be 62m in length and have an overall width of approximately 44m. This provides space for six road lanes, wide pedestrian and cyclist tracks (6m on each side) and a dedicated two-track tram corridor.
The piers are lens-shaped in plan, providing enough stability for train impact in their centre, continuously narrowing towards their north and south tips. The visually slender pier ends are vertically elongated above the deck in the shape of a narrow steel extrusion, being used as both lighting column and support structure for the tram electrification. At the same time, they become the leading visual motive linking the spaces above and below the deck.
