One of 3 Transporter bridges in the UK.

The Tees Transporter Bridge has an overall length (including cantilevers) of 851 feet (259 m), leaving a span between the centres of the towers of 590 feet (180 m), the beam of the bridge being carried at a height of 160 feet (49 m) above the road. The bridge is the longest remaining transporter bridge in the world.

Built by by Sir William Arrol & Co. of Glasgow between 1910 and 1911.
Currently the bridge is undergoing work to add a viewing area on top of the bridge and a lift is being installed.
Visisted with aem.
Pictures are from a few different visits.
