Portrack is a housing estate in Stockton-on-Tees. It is situated close to Billingham opposite Thornaby and just West of Middlesbrough. Portrack was the site of a large municipal incinerator which took in and burned waste from all over Teesside. The incinerator was closed in 1996 and demolished in 1999 and 2000.

Portrack Lane has a number of large stores. Some you can find are B&Q Superstore, Asda, Franks, Pets At Home and more. Portrack houses both a business and industrial estate.
