The Tees Vertical Lift Bridge, or Tees Newport Bridge spans the River Tees a short distance upstream from Tees Transporter Bridge, linking Middlesbrough with Stockton-on-Tees. It no longer lifts, but still acts as a road bridge in its permanently down position.

Designed by Mott, Hay and Anderson and built by Dorman, Long and Co. Completed in 1934.
