TRANSPORT NEWS: Spence design picked for Tees bridge project

Spence Associates' proposal for a bridge over the River Tees at Northbank, Stockton-on-Tees, has been selected as the preferred design for the project.

The panel that made the decision, comprising representatives from Tees Valley Regeneration, One North East, English Partnerships and Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, said the design will provide "a prestigious and distinctive landmark in line with the ambitious proposals for the site".

The bridge will pave the way for the regeneration of a 24ha former industrial site, which will feature homes, a business park and public open space.

Detailed designs for the bridge project will now to be drawn up and it is hoped that the construction contract will be awarded in the new year.

Joe Docherty, chief executive of Tees Valley Regeneration and one of the project board members who made the decision, said: "I believe that we have a design that will excite the senses, be a talking point and make a very positive statement for the Tees Valley."
