Location

The Preston Pipe Bridge carries three water pipes across the River Tees north of Ingleby Barwick in the borough of Stockton-on-Tees in the north-east of England. The bridge is situated over five kilometres upriver from Stockton town centre, and some 660 feet (200 m) upriver from Jubilee Bridge.

Design

Preston Pipe Bridge is a 210 feet (64 m) span tied arch bridge with concrete abutments[1][2] and supplies water to southern Teesside.

Construction

The bridge was built in 1959 by constructor Dowsett to carry two 33 inches (84 cm) diameter water pipes across the Tees.[1][2] The bridge arch, weighing 200 tonnes was assembled on the Durham bank from prefabricated parts and rolled out across the river on a temporary Bailey bridge, then moved sideways onto its pre-prepared concrete abutments.[1]

Operation

A third pipe was added in 1979 and there is strictly no public access across the bridge.[2] The bridge is best accessed on foot from the Jubilee Bridge along the river bank. The additional third pipe allowed for the removal a nearby single pipe bridge.[1]
