The Tees Transporter Bridge


The Grade II* listed Bridge was opened in 1911. It has been a mainstay of the Teesside skyline for more than a century and is part of the fabric of the region’s  cultural identity.  

It also offers a link between Port Clarence and Middlesbrough and remains the further downstream bridge crossing over the River Tees.  

It is managed in a joint arrangement between Middlesbrough Council and Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council.  

Safety concerns have seen the bridge closed since 2019.  

A package of interventions will be required to bring the bridge back to full operational use.


£30million allocation agreed by TVCA Cabinet January 2024
