Hello everyone,,

This is Aguieira Dam, Portugal and its the old bridge that was used before the dam was built and its still used by bikes and pedestrians when the water https://showbox.tools/ level is lower. They're probably stacking up water for the summer and it creates this mesmerising sight. Just the thought of what's over the edge, probably about 20 to 30 meters deep.

Generally all Dams have bridge over them  across the river to have movement from one bank to other. Gates in various bays allow flood water to pass without overtopping , and bridge is at top most level of Dams.

This picture is also a Dam bridge , but is submerged as there are no facilities to pass flood from one side to other. The walls across stream on u/s and d/s seem to be sheet pile walls , but actual description of picture needs to be given by the originator ,as convenient.
