Parliament backs bid to build bridge between Alcoutim and Spain

Parliament has approved a bid to build a bridge between the Algarve’s borough of Alcoutim and Sanlúcar de Guadiana in Spain, described as a long-time goal of residents from both sides of the river.

The proposal was presented by the Communist Party (PCP) and approved despite the abstention of PS, PSD and CDS-PP.

According to PCP, the state should begin talks with Spanish authorities to start developing the project, considered “vital to the economic and social development of the north-eastern Algarve”.
