Built of rubble stone, it has 3 elliptical arches, the central arch is higher and broader. There are two cutwaters on the east side, those on west side are covered by bridge widening. The west side has string courses over the arches, stepped over the central arch but not continuing over the north arch. There are rubble parapets and coping stones are in the form of a row of small stones set on edge.
