Coat of Arms of Portugal at a bridge in Tomar

The current version of the Coat of Arms of Portugal seems to have been adopted in 1911 after the Republican Revolution of 1910, and it is the result of almost a thousand years of alterations and modifications. Anyway these photos of the Portuguese Coat of Arms is located on a bridge crossing Nabão River in Tomar, Portugal, from the parishes of Santa Maria dos Olivais to São João Baptista, at Avenida Norton de Matos. I am not sure about this but it looks like this bridge may have been built in 1967 by the Ministry of Public Constructions, which is in charge of an organization called Junta Autónoma de Estradas (Autonomous Committee of Roads).
