  • Article



Access by car to Atlantic boulevards Montevideu, Brasil, Dom Carlos I and Rua do Coronel Raúl Peres and to the riverfront areas in the city of Porto is conditioned, during the public holidays of 10th and 11th June.

The Municipality of Porto has been implemented this measure over this past weekends, between 9am and 7pm, as these are places with enormous concentration of passengers and accompanying vehicles, so to increase the possibilities of social distancing and to enlarge pedestrian areas to traffic lanes, during the above stated periods, vehicle access to these areas will be conditioned.

These restrictions do not apply to residents, public transport, taxis and TVDE, as well as loading and unloading and deliveries. Drivers will have to notice police forces of their place of residence or the reason for travelling.

The fact that conditioned areas are coexistence zones means that speed limit is 20km/hour, according to traffic regulations.
