The Governador Nobre de Carvalho Bridge is a dual-lane two-way bridge that connects the Macau peninsula and Taipa island. It is the first bridge in Macau and is known among locals as the “old bridge”. This is also the only bridge where pedestrians are allowed, which enables dozens of joggers and experienced runners to cross it for sport.
Governador Nobre de Carvalho Bridge only allows public transportation such as taxis and buses, thus private cars aren’t allowed to cross it. Like every other bridge in Macau, Governador Nobre de Carvalho closes during typhoons, so cars can only cross through the Sai Van tunnel, located below the bridge with the same name.
Opening hours: 24 hours
