    This pedestrian, vehicle bridge
    links Middlesbrough.
    The vertical lifting bridge was designed by Mott Hay and Anderson,
    and built by Dorman long.
    opened on 28th February 1934,
    last lifting on 18th November 1990.
    Theres 2 towers one north and another south of 180ft, the bridge span between is 269ft.
    The bridge carries the, A1032 road.
    The bridge is due too be part refurbished in 2014 and painted white, red.

    reaching the north tower was abit difficult considering the heavy traffic,
    theres a long ladder with no hiding.

    Nice man, I've had the same idea but was going to go for sunrise rather than sunset.

    There's also a sectioned ladder with no hiding ;)

    Well played if you went up the single one.
