Middlesbrough - Transporter Bridge
Transporter Bridge image

Built in 1911 under a 1907 Act of Parliament, the Transporter Bridge, which spans the River Tees, reflects the dynamic industrial heritage of our area.

It is capable of carrying 600 people at a time. You drive or walk into a cradle that is suspended beneath the main span of the bridge and which carries its load of cars and pedestrians across the Tees some 160ft above the river in just two and a half minutes. It even featured in the film Billy Elliott.

For information about running times and opening hours, please phone 01642 247563.
