Unlike many other bridges, the iconic bridge of Amaravati capital city is intended to be aesthetically pleasant to its citizens.
The style of the Iconic bridge will reflect the glory and rich cultural heritage of Andhra Pradesh. It will be a cable-supported Bridge that reflects culture and prominence of Andhra Pradesh in the structural configuration (along with high tensioned cable stay supports) of the Bridge. 
The overall shape and proposition of the bridge is designed keeping in mind of vehicle commuters, pedestrians, commuters in the river.

Pedestrians will be able to stop and enjoy the beauty of the river flowing underneath and the general nature surrounding and the views of the capital city.
