The extension comprised of demolishing the short western abutment, founding a new abutment below road level in the west and adding a simple span deck that rested on bearings on the cantilever section of the existing bridge in the east and on the new abutment in the west. The extended decks were designed as simple spans, resting on bearings on the half-depth deck cantilever support on the east and the new abutments in the west. It comprises of conventional reinforced concrete with steel tube void formers and the decks were constructed using conventional staging from ground level.
