The bridge at Antas that collapsed during the Sept 2012 storms is finally going to be rebuilt.
Four out of the 15 spans of this bridge were washed away in the flood. The new section of the bridge will replace these with just two spans, which will allow 167% more water underneath, it seems.
It’s being built by Progall (surprise!) at a cost of €358.000.
Mayor Isabel Belmonte reckons a thousand lorries are having to find an alternate route from the village on their way to ship fruit and veg to the rest of the known world.
