Barcelona metro line 10

Project description

The initial project for line 9 and line 10 of the Barcelona metro appeared in the late 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 El Prat de Llobregat along a 42 km tunnel and 46 stations, a tunnel that would be the longer than Barcelona and would cross the city transversely, almost parallel to the Ronda del Mig.

Line 10 of the Barcelona metro is an automatic metropolitan railway line of the Barcelona metro operated by Transportes Metropolitanos de Barcelona (TMB) that circulates through the same tunnel as line 9 and that runs between the Zona Franca – Zal 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 Prat de Llobregat. Between Bon Pastor and Gornal the L9 and L10 will share the route and platforms. From the Gorg to Motors station, the trains will run underground with tracks at different levels, and from the Litoral Free Zone to the Free Zone – Zal through a 6.5m high viaduct.

Trains on the L10 line run without a driver thanks to an automatic control system. These trains have a length of almost 90 meters and 5 continuous cars, where there is space for 960 people in each one.

Luxes has participated, and continues to participate,in the lighting of Line 10 of the Barcelona Metro, in particular in the Provençana, Illdefons Cerdà, Foneria and Foc Cisell stations.

Luxeshas developed and has been involved in all the lighting phases of Line 10, from the definition and initial planning to commissioning, offering a complete and global vision of the management and development of the project.

Luxes has special experience inthe rapid and efficient management of resources, capable of preparing a project in a very short time, in coordination and juxtaposed with the planning, execution of the work and commissioning.
