Middlesbrough’s Heritage: A Journey Through Industrial Yorkshire

The Tees Transporter Bridge, opened in 1911, is the only working bridge of its kind in England. Following the recent £2.6m HLF-supported Visitor Experience Project, a new glass viewing lift has been installed providing access to the landmark’s 160ft upper walkway. The newly modernised gondola continues to transport pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles across the River Tees. The Transporter Bridge is also licensed for bungee jumping and abseiling.
