Built in 1928 the bridge is a Public Works Department standard design, single-lane, single-span truss road bridge built of Australian hardwood. It is in good condition with high integrity. The bridge has a modified Howe truss span of 24.8 metres and one 9.5 metre land span of rolled steel joists. The deck is 4.7 metres wide. Near the right bank a concrete pier supports the truss and land span.
Setting is lowland forest, mainly tawa, on steep hill country. The bridge spans the Manganuku Stream.
