The bridge is designed to reconnect the nearby walnut orchard so that produce could be harvested and transported so that the local economy of the villagers would be re-instated. The concept was to create a bridge that was a singular loop that would link two levels of the riverbanks with an additional arm that would connect to the river. The bridge can be a social hub for the village providing steps for seating, shaded areas for relaxation and as a meeting point for trade and commerce. The bridge is constructed from cast-concrete that is dyed with black pigment to distinguish itself from the typical grey concrete of the highway viaduct that sits adjacent to the crossing and to give it a distinct identity.
