Lit by Speirs + Major, the distinctive footbridge over the River Tees has become a symbol of transformation for North East England.

The resulting footbridge links the north and south shores and provides access to business and jobs in the area. Designed by Expedition Engineering, the bowstring bridge cuts a distinctive silhouette across the river.
