Pedestrian bridge assembly in Tavira scheduled for October

The Tavira Chamber issued a public clarification pointing to the months of October or November to begin the construction of the new bridge over the Almargem stream, when the material supply period that the company responsible for the assembly has in progress ends.

Last February, the Portuguese Federation of Cycling and Bicycle Users (FPCUB) criticized the Tavira Chamber for the delay in repairing the only pedestrian and cycling bridge over the Almargem stream, closed since 2017.
