The bridge forms an inverted “Y”-shape with a 100-metre-tall pylon. Until Rędziński Bridge was opened on the 31 August 2011, it used to be the longest cable-stayed bridge in Poland supported by a single pylon[1].

The bridge links the Northern Port of Gdańsk with the national road network and is the first section of the future by-pass road of the city of Gdańsk.
