Originally, the bridge's designer, JCC Bradfield, proposed a suspension bridge, then a cantilever bridge, which was the first proposal accepted. After that, Bradfield turned his sights towards an arch bridge, after travelling overseas and seeing the developments in light steel which made a steel arch bridge such a possibility.
