It is a single lane bridge of two 30m spans made up out of Pratt Trusses resting on abutments and single pier cast in concrete.
The bridge is still in regular use by local residents and affiliates.
It is worth mentioning that the present day bridge has its number plates not fixed to specifications which state that: ‘Bridge numbers shall be positioned on the left side of the carriageway when facing in the direction of travel as shown in the details‘. (See illustration)

The bridge was originally painted blue, hence the name 'Blue Bridge'.
