The councils of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia have announced the construction of a new bridge over the Douro River, a project that will be entirely funded by the two cities.

The new 250-metre crossing, to be called D. António Francisco dos Santos Bridge after the bishop who died last year, will be the seventh bridge between the two cities.

The mayors of the two cities estimate it will cost about €12 million and be completed in three to four years.
