It was used for normal traffic (cars) and in the 80's it was also used by "trolleybuses".

I don't know if many of you know, but Metro do Porto had to construct a new bridge (Infante bridge) for the traffic that used to run on D.Luis bridge:

Is D. Luis Bridge nowadays only used by the light rail?

D-Luís Bridge has two decks:
- The upper deck is only used by Metro do Porto (although it is possible for emergency services to cross it, in extreme situations).
- The lower deck is used by road traffic.

And the deck at the very bottom (~20m below the trains)? For pedestrians?

Just out of curiosity, does the Porto trolleybus system still exist? Obviously it doesnt run over the bridge anymore but is the network still in existance in other parts of the city?
