Tees Transporter Bridge

The Tees Transporter Bridge carries vehicles, foot passengers and cyclists between Middlesbrough and Port Clarence all year round except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

The gondola service and lift can close at short notice due to high winds, fog, severe weather conditions and essential maintenance works.
