THE SYMBOL OF TEESSIDE

The Tees Transporter Bridge, an instantly recognisable and highly visible structure, whether travelling towards Teesside from the north or the south, is one of the first sights that signifies home for many Teessiders.

Built in 1911, it straddles the River Tees between Middlesbrough and Port Clarence, and ferries vehicles and pedestrians across the water on a gondola suspended from the main span.

The traffic using the bridge is only a fraction of that experienced during Teesside's industrial heyday, but it now possesses the accolade of being the longest remaining transporter bridge in use across the world.
