The Tees Newport Bridge is a vertical-lift bridge spanning the River Tees a short distance upriver from Tees Transporter Bridge, linking Middlesbrough with the borough of Stockton-on-Tees, in the northeast of England; it was completed in 1934. It no longer lifts, but still acts as a road bridge in its permanently down position.
When there was a slight lift of the lockdown, i cycled to Newport as i really want to see the bridge and how it all works, I mean it's cool and very big. You must visit it, if you're passing or staying in Newport.
The Bridge is closed 1 October 2019 until April 2020
Organised group visits may be arranged, please email Transporter.firstname.lastname@example.org
