A brief diversion from the A 19 when driving back from Newcastle, and a chance to ride over the iconic Middlesborough Transporter Bridge


On a trip back from Newcastle, I decided to turn off the A 19 and take a detour over the transporter bridge, to the annoyance of my passengers.

The bridge runs every 15 minutes through most of the day. To be brutally honest, there's not much imediately north of the bridge, and the A 19 offers reasonably access anyway, but to some that live nearby and the odd tourist, the bridge serves a purpose. Once the transporter car arrives, and the guard has taken your pound fivety, the ride across is really fast.
