Viewed from the south bank, although because the meandering of the river actually looking south west. The new railway bridge is immediately behind whilst the A66 road bridge is behind that.
Walter Scott Bridge
The railway bridge over the River Tees was built in 1882 by Walter Scott of Newcastle for a cost of 18,550 and replaced an earlier suspension bridge built in 1830 to extend the Darlington and Stockton railway to the staithes at Middlesbrough.

The bridge was last used for freight in July 1988 and the plan is to replace the bridge with a 8m new one for freight traffic with Tees Dock.
