A piece of history in front of your eyes. This bridge is a great example of northern industrial achievement when the area was the centre of the country's industrial growth. That is why it is still working!!!!!!!

1911 was a great year that's when this remarkable Teesside icon was built. This monument to the determination of the Ironmasters of the the 20th century and the blood, muscle and grit of the pioneer Middlesbrough people was built to replace the small ferry boats which took people across the Tees between Port Clarence and Middlesbrough. Thousands of workers made... More

This is an icon in Middlesbrough, if I am not mistaken there is only two bridges like this working in the world. If you are just visiting its a must to cross the river either on foot or in your car. And ask about the curly wurly man.

Teesside has designed and built bridges around the world... Trent Bridge, Sydney Harbour, The Bosphorous, Tyne Bridge, Wandsworth Bridge to name but a few, but the Transporter on the Tees is my favourite of the lot. Its located in my home town of Middlesbrough to start with, which helps, but its construction is unnecessarily complex and its design is almost... More

Recently visited The Tees Transporter Bridge as it is officially known. But it was shut. They are repairing it and the gondola so I just had to stare in wonder. Shows you should keep up to date with TripAdvisor reviews! From a distance it is impressive. Close-up it is very, very impressive indeed. The vibrant blue paintwork glowed in the... More

Their site claims that the bridge will reopen july 2014. Visitorcentre is closed as well. So unfortunately we missen it.

The bridge is an absolute classic. It serves a practical purpose transporting people like myself back and forth saving time and mileage., something it kept on doing without fail throughout the worst of weather when the rest of the world was grinding to a halt. The guys working on it are a cheerful tolerant bunch always ready for a chat.... More

I would not have planned my trip to transporter bridge - if not my Bungee Jump booking! Not sure what's other option to get that excited about that bridge. So if you are adrenaline junkie, definitely go for it!

The bridge is closed & undergoing a major upgrade. I am sure it had originally been advertised as due to reopen in late 2013. We drove to the bridge on Monday 10th Feb 2014. The bridge appears nowhere near ready. I asked a local who suggested that the reopening may be at least a couple of months away. One of... More
