The accident occurred at around 9:00am, initially causing a complete shutdown of traffic due to the load that was scattered on the road.

“At this moment there is already a lane open for traffic and the cargo has started to be removed, so the traffic has started to flow”, said the same source, at 10:45am.

The Vasco da Gama Bridge, over the Tagus River, connects the districts of Lisbon and Setúbal.
