Railway bridge built in 1891, being 104 meters long.
It is located on the Beira Baixa Line, between the stations of Barca da Amieira-Envendos and Fratel.
The Linha da Beira Baixa, originally called Caminho de Ferro da Beira Baixa, is a railway connection between the stations of Entroncamento and Guarda, in the Central region (Beiras Region), in Portugal. The first section, from Abrantes to Covilhã Station, entered into service on September 6, 1891, and the line was completed with the inauguration to Guarda, on May 11, 1893. At that time, it was considered that only the section between Abrantes and Guarda was part of the Beira Baixa Line, while the section between Entroncamento and Abrantes belonged to the Eastern Line.
Part of this line runs along the Tagus River, passing close to the Fratel Dam, and another segment runs close to the border with Spain, surrounding Serra da Estrela; it serves mainly the territories of the old province of Beira Baixa, from which it received its name. Due to its layout, this line was nicknamed the Tagus Valley Line.
From Abrantes to Guarda, the Beira Baixa Line is approximately 212 km long.
At Mouriscas-A Station, the Pego Branch Line, which serves the Pego Thermoelectric Power Plant, enters.
