About 5,000 vehicles crossed the land border of Castro Marim, in the Algarve, in the first two days after the reopening of road connections between Portugal and Spain, police sources told Lusa.

"On Sunday the road movement has been much higher than Saturday, namely with the displacement of Spanish citizens to Portugal, it is estimated that the number of vehicles may exceed five thousand", elements from Portuguese and Spanish authorities told Lusa.

According to the authorities of inspection at the border of Castro Marim, in the district of Faro, “the road traffic this morning was around 120 cars per minute, a number higher than that registered on Saturday and much higher than that of the first days”. "With the reopening of the borders, there is no more control, but there are many Spanish and Portuguese citizens who call us to ask if there are any restrictions on passage," said a police source.
