The bridge consists of a three dimensional truss with two continuous levels that sits on three tree shape columns. There are two platforms on top of the main columns forming the third level viewpoints. All the levels are connected to each other by stairs and multiple ramps, providing multiple paths throughout the bridge to get from each level to another. Tabiat Bridge weighs more than 2,000 tons, needed more than 14,000 pieces of steel in different sizes, and is built over 40 meters above the ground.
