The Jubilee Bridge is a road and pedestrian/cycle bridge carrying the Queen Elizabeth Way north-south across the River Tees linking Stockton-on-Tees with nearby Ingleby Barwick in the borough of Stockton-on-Tees in the north-east of England.[1][2] The bridge is over 3.1 miles (5 km) upriver from, and over 1.9 miles (3 km) approximately south of Stockton town centre.[citation needed]

Design

The Jubilee Bridge is a balanced cantilever design, 150 m long with 3 spans and a main span of 106 m.[1][2] It is constructed from reinforced concrete and T-section steel plate girders.[3] It carries dual two lane carriageways and additionally on the western side, a pedestrian cycle track linking in to the local pedestrian cycle tracks on the southern bank of the River Tees.[4]

The piers are supported on 914 mm concrete-filled tubular steel piles and the abutments are supported by steel 'H' piles.[2]
