Billingham Branch Bridge
Road bridge over disused railway line. 1934, by Mott, Hay and Anderson, Engineers;
built by Dorman Long & Co Ltd. Steel, concrete and brick. Slightly skew, with
troughing deck supported on 9 longitudinal steel girders, each of 5 welded spans.
The spans are welded to the supporting stanchion-legs and the outer spans extended
towards and support the centre-slung length of the centre span. The southern-most
span is similarly slung. At each end of the bridge the girders rest on reinforced
concrete beams supported on reinforced concrete columns sunk into the abutments.
Rockers at the feet of the stanchion legs rest on mild steel slabs dowelled to trans-
verse reinforced concrete beams. Additional support is given below ground by framing
of reinforced concrete piles, struts, beams and cylinders. Panelled brick parapet
with concrete plinth and copings. Reputed to be the first welded steel bridge in
Britain. (W P Haldane & G Roberts: Minutes of Proc. of Inst. of Civil Engrs, Vol 240,
1935, pp 537-566).
