Fantastic

A wonder to look at, the engineering for the day is a wonder to behold. Never get tired of looking at it, as is The Transporter Bridge

The Tees Transporter Bridge is the furthest downstream bridge across the River Tees and connects Middlesbrough, on the south bank, to Port Clarence, on the north bank. The bridge is currently closed for renovation. As a child I often used the bridge and, despite the passing of years, it remains a major landmark and is of significant historical value to... More

The Transporter Bridge was supposed to re-open in July 2014, it had been closed for several months. To date it still has not re-opened. I like to take my grandchildren on the Transporter when we go to Seaton Carew. Disappointing for all.

I always make a point of taking friends from outside the area over this toll bridge over the River Tees. It was built to allow river crossings at the same time as allowing very large ships to pass by. It is part of the area's industrial heritage and has been attractively painted blue and floodlit ( from the south side)... More

The Transporter bridge in Middlesbrough is one of the last suspended pontoon type crossings in the world. The bridge is in full working order and travels every 30 minutes subject to wind. A small fortune was spent refurbishing it a few years ago and has been well worth it.

They are installing a lift, you will need to keep in touch with the website for when the works are finished which will make it fantastic, the bridge is not always in working order to take you over the river which is disappointing and the signage for that is usually directly at the bridge, but, what a great way to...

On a road trip around the North East & West coasts going across the Tees at the transporter bridge was a highlight - well worth a visit to see something so extraordinary.

Whilst it is still one of the bigger attractions of Middlesbrough (pun intended). It's still undergoing maintenance, and has been for the last year and a half. Be sure to plan around this whilst arranging any trips out. I would much rather see it maintained, opposed to simply pulling it down, and placing a stationary bridge there. It's a great... More
