Subject: Lyr Req: Song about Teesside bridges
From: C-flat
Date: 14 Apr 19 - 07:54 AM

Many years ago I heard Vin Garbutt sing a song about bridges over the river Tees.
Iíve tried a number of ways to search for it but, without the title, Iím getting nothing.
I remember the chorus going something like-
ďIf youíre looking for fine bridges then on Teesside weíve got two,
To show what local engineers and labourers can do,
Thereís one that takes the traffic up way out of shippings way,
And the other shuttles back and forth a hundred times a dayĒ

Iím hoping the Mudcat hive-mind can give me the rest of the song or a link to where Iíll find it.

Thanks in advance...

The Transporter does stll shuttle back and forth, but not always, unpredictable.
The Newport Bridge no longer lifts it's roadway out of shipping's way but you can still cross it.
The A19 concrete bridge just stands there and is the most used (though is often closed for work at night)
RIP Vin

As a child crossing the Transporter (to catch the bus from Port Clarence for day out at Seaton Carew) I used to be afraid of what would happen if the cables holding the platform up snapped. My parents told me that even if all the cables snapped the platform would float. The prospect of gently drifting off into the North Sea was no end of comfort ;-)
