Monday Morning Blues – 25 de Abril Bridge, Lisbon

This weeks’ Monday morning blues pic comes from Portugal.

The o25 de Abril Bridge in the capital is a suspension bridge across to the municipality of Almada on the left bank of the Tagus river.

It was completed in 1966, whilst a train platform was added in 1999. Built by the American Bridge Company, it is often compared to the Golden Gate Bridge due to its design & colour.

Its total length is an impressive 2,277 metres, but this surprisingly makes it only the 32nd largest suspension bridge in the world.

The upper deck carries six car lanes, while the lower deck carries the two train tracks.
