- Specifically, three new L10 stations are put into operation: Port Comercial / La Factoria, Ecoparc and ZAL / Riu Vell.
- The facilities, which are located on a viaduct, will collectively record more than one million trips per year.
The Government of the Generalitat will put into operation three new L10 stations in the Zona Franca next Sunday, November 7. These are the Port Comercial / La Factoria, Ecoparc and ZAL / Riu Vell stations, in the Marina del Prat Vermell neighborhood and which, together with the existing Free Zone, will serve the industrial Free Zone.
The construction and commissioning of these new stations has involved a combined investment of 120 million euros and it is expected that they will record more than one million trips a year in total. The three new stations and the Zona Franca station rise in a viaduct for practically 3 kilometers along the A street of the Zona Franca, and therefore, the metro runs on the surface, while the rest of the stations of the L9 / L10 system are buried.
Specifically, line 10 South currently consists of 8 stations in service: Collblanc, Torrassa, Can Tries – Gornal, Provençana, Ciutat de la Justícia, Foneria, Foc and Zona Franca. The first three are also part of the L9 Sur, which connects the Zona Universitària and Aeroport T1 stations. With the 3 new stations, L10 South will add 11.
The commissioning of these stations is added to the works that the Government plans to complete the L9 / L10, with an investment of about 950 million euros. Currently, the L9 / L10 metro system has 37.5 kilometers of line in service and 32 stations.
