In a statement, the Chamber of Braga clarifies that the first phase of the work focuses on “the section between the southern entrance of the University of Minho (roundabout) and the junction of Avenida dos Lusíadas with Avenida D. João II”.

Automobile circulation on that section will be conditioned during the intervention, which has an expected execution time of 90 days, adds the municipality.
