Tees Transporte­r, Middlesbro­ugh


Built in 1911 and spanning

850ft, the Transporte­r was originally erected to ferry workers between factories and foundries in Middlesbro­ugh and Port Clarence.

A section of moveable roadway is suspended by cables from the top of the bridge, transporti­ng traffic by shuttling it back and forth.

Its famous gondola featured in the movie Billy Elliot. Although closed since 2019 for essential repair work, this landmark has been one of the UK’s major sites for sports such as abseiling and bungee jumps. middlesbro­
