each consisting of six curved members as girders, which rest on 2 sets twelve cast iron
baseless fluted Doric columns, which in turn rest on 2 cast iron caissons sunk in the
river. The bridge is topped by an ornate iron balustrade. The abuttments are built of
white brick with moulded ashlar details, some parts have been patched with blue

the arches. The bridge was strengthened with steel ties in 1910 and again in 1914.
