The work that is being carried out on the cliffs overlooking the João Abel de Freitas tunnel, in the access to Campo da Barca, results in the construction of a protection structure, which we can call a false tunnel of reinforced concrete, with about 340 meters, against the cliff on both banks of the Ribeira de João Gomes, as revealed in a note of the presidency of the government, announcing that the president will visit the work on 11th June.

The Funchal News publishes some images of the works in progress, which give an idea of ​​how the link will be. “The structure receives a superior protection slab, prepared to receive a layer of soil to absorb impacts resulting from the eventual fall of blocks, and will cover the two sections parallel to the river, developing into two structures, leaving one side exposed curving over the river. “
