Bridge works

Portugal’s national road company Estradas de Portugal (EP) is to carry out repair works on one of the bridges over the Ribeira de Quarteira in the area of Purgatório in Albufeira council.

Albufeira Mayor Desidério Silva said: “The bridge is supported by pillars that are in a very bad condition.”

EP has already launched a public tender for the works valued at €450,000, with an expected completion time of 150 days.

This bridge links the Purgatório area to Paderne.
