  • This railway structure, by Edgar Cardoso, connects Campanhã station in Porto to all southern destinations with the first station being General Torres in Vila Nova de Gaia. Its central span of 250m, was a new world record among the bridges in "portico". The three spans are supported by two large piers founded in the riverbed close to each of the riverbanks. The inauguration took place on June 24, 1991, the day of São João.
