The Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge is the furthest downstream bridge across the River Tees. It connects Middlesbrough on the south bank to Port Clarence on the north bank. It is a transporter bridge, carrying a travelling 'car' or 'gondola' suspended from the bridge, across the river in 90 seconds. The car can carry 200 people, 9 cars or 6 cars and one minibus. The bridge was built in 1911 under a 1907 Act of Parliament. The opening ceremony on the 7 October 1911 was performed by Prince Arthur of Connaught. Teesside has a long tradition of bridge building.
