Ponte 25 de Abril

Atravessa a parte mais estreita do estuário do Tejo

Gargalo do Tejo é o nome da parte mais estreita do estuário do rio e onde se localiza a Ponte 25 de Abril.

Uma ponte com vários recordes

Esta ponte, sendo um eixo essencial na comunicação das duas margens, liga as cidades de Lisboa e Almada.

É apelidada com frequência de “Portuguese Golden Gate Bridge” pelas suas semelhanças com a ponte de São Francisco. Entretanto, ao fim de mais de 50 anos de ideias e projetos, a construção desta ponte atribuiu-se à mesma empresa norte americana. Originalmente conhecida como Ponte Salazar, esta obra de engenharia ficaria na história da cidade por diversos motivos. Ter custado menos que o previsto e ter sido executada em tempo recorde, foram certamente dois deles.

E com muitas histórias para contar

O nome original, de Ponte Salazar, resultou de uma homenagem ao Presidente do Conselho de Ministros da época. Contudo, logo a seguir à Revolução de Abril de 1974, o seu nome mudou-se para Ponte 25 de Abril.

Com um comprimento total de cerca de 2.280 m, a imponência desta Ponte é impossível de passar despercebida. Aquando da sua inauguração, a 6 de Agosto de 1966, era a quinta maior ponte suspensa do mundo e a maior fora dos Estados Unidos. Passados cinquenta anos permanece entre o grupo das 20 maiores pontes suspensas a nível mundial.

Embora construída para a circulação exclusiva de automóveis, em 1999, passou a permitir também a circulação ferroviária.

Não sendo permitida a passagem pedonal, a Ponte 25 de Abril todos os anos se enche de milhares de desportistas do mundo inteiro. A meia maratona de Lisboa, que ocorre em Março, é já um marco no desporto da cidade. Assim, esta constituí também uma oportunidade única para pisar o tabuleiro da ponte.

Quando se passa por baixo desta grandiosa estrutura ouve-se o som da deslocação dos carros e dos comboios. A 70 metros de altura do nível do rio, o tabuleiro, em parte metálico, cria um zumbido audível a centenas de metros de distância. É absolutamente impressionante.

A 27 de Setembro de 2017 inaugurou-se a Experiência Pilar 7. Sem dúvida a segunda melhor vista sobre Lisboa. Venha descobrir a primeira connosco!
