Jubilee Bridge has a cantilever truss structure, constructed exclusively by riveting. It is designed for the end girders to rest on overhangs of the central girder. Its unique construction also includes pendulum bearings, which perhaps are not seen in any other bridge in the country. The bridge abutments are made of brick masonry whereas the piers are partly of steel.
