The bridge has three Y-shaped towers to make two equal main spans of 134 meters in length. It is on an S-curve to aid in connecting to the adjoining roadways. This was built by an Indian company which incurred a loss of $10million at that time. Project was delayed by one year due to its technical complicacy and few incidents during construction.The stays form a harp arrangement. The structural designer, Dar Al-Handasah, won a commendation award in 2007 from the Institution of Structural Engineers for this bridge.
