  • To your construction began on 24 October 2004 and took 6 years to complete. The grandeur of the project was always great, signed by engineer Mario de Miranda, an Italian hired exclusively for such a feat. Altogether there are 1.8 kilometres long that carry pedestrians and motorists from one side to the other of the Potengi River. Of these, 500 metres are sustained only by steel cables. These for your time, get stuck in just two giant blocks, each one of 110 meters high. Have the rest of the bridge receives support for conventional bars.

  • Great work done by our Government, the bridge connecting the East and West for the best-known North zone, where covers several neighborhoods of great importance, and also to several beaches of the northeast coast, Santa Rita, Redinha, Redinha New and so on, the Newton Navarro bridge is great to give that bike, so you better come up, testing the physical quality of each, but not everything is flowers, various rates of suicide in the end, cause inconvenience to people who live near and a bele drawn, vessels arriving at the port, pass under the bridge, causing a great attraction for those who are on top of the tip and be able to observe from above.

  • Was very beautiful. But the immediacy and the political interest bothers me. Did two lanes with no shoulder
