Rusticated Portland stone piers, circular in plan, on deep plinths and with cyma recta cornice. To top, metal lamp standards with fluted shafts and a pair of arms to each side. The lamp globes have been removed. Each pier has scrolled stone brackets that rest on the parapets of the Mornington Street bridge.
