Eco Via closed !

Sorry to say but the Eco Via between Cabanas and Tavira is now closed as the bridge has become even more dangerous than it was and the authorities have placed barriers at each end of the bridge.

I have had a response from the CM (Town Hall) - looks like it is hoped to be open again by the 'end of the second quarter 2018' by which I think they mean the end of June but will check and post again if necessary. Hope this helps - it certainly reassures us.

Very well done Waltonsmiffs, it is great to know that they are planning to address the repair or replacement of this much used bridge even if it will be the second quarter of the year.

In my opinion the steel framework is warped and the whole thing may need to be replaced.

Thanks to WaltonSmiffs, I have also managed to raise a complaint via the link that I posted previously (#22). Not a difficult thing to do, (with a little help from Google Translate). Map to pinpoint the area of concern. Perhaps numbers will help, if anyone else feels able.

Acknowledgement received and will keep you posted.

"It appears that all you need to register a complaint (apart from name and email address) is your NIF, to show that you are a citizen. We will keep you updated"

. Sorry what is an NIF and how does one get one?

It's is a tax identification number, Número de Indentificação Fiscal (NIF). All residents and non-resident foreigners with financial affairs in Portugal must obtain a fiscal number. Usually before buying property or even a car, opening a bank account etc.

Applications for an NIF number can be made by tourists or residents at the local Tax Office (finanças).
