The New Bridge at Avenida Norton de Matos in Tomar

These are photos of the so called New Bridge of Tomar at Avenida Norton de Matos. People got used to call it New Bridge despite the fact that now there is a new bridge at an area of Tomar called Flecheiro. When I was a kid and went back to Angola, this bridge didn’t exist and when I got back to Portugal in 1975 it was already there. Everybody calls it the New Bridge which links one margin of Nabão River to the other. It also links the parish of São João Baptista to the parish of Santa Maria dos Olivais.

This is the New Bridge at Avenida Norton de Matos in Tomar. This was a cloudy day and for some reason not many cars were crossing it at the time. That green area on the right is where the Market of Tomar is located

This photo of the New Bridge of Tomar was shot more or less in the same spot, but this was a sunny day and cars were crossing the bridge from one side of Nabão River to the other
