The Tees Transporter Bridge links Middlesbrough on the south bank of the river Tees to Port Clarence on the north and is the longest transporter bridge in the world with a span (between the towers) of 590ft.

Built by Sir William Arrol & Co. of Glasgow between 1910 and 1911 the bridge replaced a ferry service and the travelling ‘gondola’, suspended from the bridge, can carry 200 people or nine cars across the river in just 90 seconds!
