The bridge forms an inverted “Y”-shape with a 100-metre-tall pylon. It is 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.
