Line 10 of the Barcelona subway
The initial project of line 9 and line 10 of the Barcelona metro appeared at the end of the 1990s; In 1999 the Generalitat decided to build this line, which would link the municipalities of Badalona, Santa Coloma de Gramenet, Barcelona, l’Hospitalet de Llobregat and Prat de Llobregat along a 42-km, 46-station tunnel, which would be the Longest in Barcelona and cross the city transversally, almost parallel to the Ronda del Mig.
Line 10 of the Barcelona metro is an automatic metropolitan rail line of the Barcelona metro operated by Metropolitan Transport of Barcelona (TMB) that runs through the same tunnel as line 9 and runs between the Zona Franca – Zal stations and Gorg.
Once it is completely finished, it will provide service and connect the city of Barcelona with the municipalities of Badalona, Hospitalet de Llobregat and the free zone of Barcelona and the Prat de Llobregat. Between Bon Pastor and Gornal the L9 and the L10 will share tracks and platforms. From the station of Gorg to Motors, the trains will circulate underground with tracks at different levels, and from Free Zone Litoral to Zona Franca – Zal through a viaduct of 6.5m in height.
The trains of the L10 line circulate without driver thanks to an automatic control system. These trains have a length of almost 90 meters and 5 continuous cars, where there is room for 960 people in each.
