More information:

Opened to traffic on 28 February, 1934, the Tees Newport Bridge is a vertical lift bridge spanning the River Tees linking Middlesbrough with the borough of Stockton-on-Tees, England. Although no longer operational as such, the bridge is designed so that the centre section may be lifted to allow for the passage of boats beneath - the last time it was used in this way was during November 1990. It now acts only as an additional crossing over the river Tees.
