Deritend completes refurbishment work on iconic Tees Transporter Bridge

Deritend has completed refurbishment work on the Tees Transporter Bridge in Middlesborough.

The maintenance, service and repair organisation has spent the past three weeks carrying out a series of major refurbishment projects on the bridge’s electric motors to ensure that the renowned landmark is in full working order for its centenary celebrations next year.

Although the project has seen the original electric motors on the bridge replaced with new machinery, the team at Deritend has treated the project with the “recognition and respect” needed when working on a heritage site, according to operations manager Mark Westwood.

“Our team has designed a bespoke solution for the Transporter Bridge that has retained the iconic engineering of the site whilst ensuring that the bridge will be working well for decades to come,” said Westwood.
