Surtees Bridge
Surtees Bridge
Carrying the A66 over the River Tees, the bridge is currently being widened at a cost of 14.3m. Apart having only two lanes (in each direction) the existing bridge could not meet the specification for the latest 40te lorries. The work is expected to be complete in Autumn 2007. The 344t sections of the bridge was lifted into place by a 1200t Gottwald AK680 crane, seen here on the right.

Why "Surtees"? There are two theories. Firstly it is named after the Surtees family, lords of the manor of Dinsdale in medieval times. Alternatively it's a corruption of the french "sur Tees" meaning on the Tees.
