Any bridge or infrastructure is designed for 100 years of design life. The structure remains an integral part of the surrounding areas and adds to the overall look and feel. Hence, importance should be given to the aesthetical parameters of the structure.
As a principle, the aesthetics of a structure should be achieved through structural forms, without hampering the structural efficiency, and without adding any non-structural elements.
