One of the main formal qualities of the footbridges is the constant presence of curves and counter-curves in their various elements. Access is through a pointed arch between the concrete supports of the vault, with a massive visual impact. Subsequently, the vault rises and reduces its thickness and in turn the lateral arch grows in elevation, emphasising the lightness of the structure and the creation of a large viewpoint overlooking the river. On the other hand, the vault and deck are narrower in the centre. This deck has a curved slope that starts with a 4% slope at the end and reduces to 0% in the centre, where it reaches a level approximately 40 cm above the height at the ends.
All of these features create a spatial compression and decompression effect that gives a special character to the crossing of the river and the access to the park. The curtain of cables that define the vertical walls increases the sensation of entering a clearly formalised space and means that each step offers the walker a unique perspective of the façade of the Avenida del Manzanares, the Salón de Pinos and the Parque de la Arganzuela.
