Long Description:
The 25 de Abril Bridge (translation: 25th of April Bridge, in Portuguese: Ponte 25 de Abril) is a suspension bridge connecting the city of Lisbon, capital of Portugal, to the municipality of Almada on the left bank of the Tagus river.
It was inaugurated on August 6, 1966 and a train platform was added in 1999.
It is often compared to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, USA, due to their similarities and same construction company.
With a total length of 2,277 m, it is the 20th largest suspension bridge in the world.
The upper platform carries six car lanes, the lower platform two train tracks.
Until 1974 the bridge was named Salazar Bridge.
