Newport Bridge Route

This route winds around both banks of the River Tees starting from the Watersports Centre heading down river to Newport bridge on the North bank of the river before crossing at Newport Bridge and heading back to Tees Barrage on the South Bank. The terrain is relatively flat and paved throughout and is both walker and cycle friendly. The route is also away from traffic, except for the Newport Bridge crossing, where you walk/cycle on a paved footpath next to the road.
