Tee Transporter Bridge.


Similar to the Newport Transporter Bridge in Wales which I have visited in the past today we crossed in the campervan  the River Tee’s at Middlesbrough on the Tee’s Transporter Bridge.

Built in 1911 to transport worker rcross the river. In 2011  The heritage Lottery Fund confirmed a £2.6m award to support the refurbishment of the bridge.

 

With a span of 851 feet this iconic structure is the longest working transporter bridge in the world. It is a landmark on Teesside.
