Open since 1985 as part of L4 (section La Pau-Pep Ventura), it became part of L2 in 2002, like the rest of that section.
The station has an interchange with L10, which is the easiest of the whole network except for one of the interchange options between L3 and L2 at Paral.lel station.

What you see on the pic are the remains of one of the two platforms.
Correos used to have only one track.

With the extension to Barceloneta, they had to destroy the second (and bigger) platform to make room for the track for trains bound for Jaume I.

The entrance stairs now are part of the ventilation system, just at the door of the Correos building, next to Via Laietana.

Didnīt you know this?

This is of cause not true, as we know according to Gisa the station platform is located 108.1 meters above sea level and the station lobby at 181 mamsl. Since the actual station is located under and between Carrer de Lorda and Carrer de Santa Rosalia (190 mamsl according to institut cartografic de catalunya) it can impossibly be more than 85 meters under ground.

The only place where the L5 tunnel could run over a 100 meter under ground is when it crosses under Carrer de la Manxa (198 mamsl) but I don't think that is the case as it would require an impossible drop down to under 95 meters above sea level for the track, 12 meter drop in less than 300 meters of track (36+ permille). I think it is simply a missunderstanding between a municipal technician and the local press that reported those numbers.

Anyway, had the station been 104 meters under ground it would have been the second depest metro station in the world after Arsenalna station in Kiev.

So I checked some more, the stations maximum depth is right under the crossing between Camí dels Āngeles and Carrer de Lorda, 202-108=94 meters.

The 104 meters they got from counting the street level of Carrer del Santuari (204 mamsl) but in fact the tunnel run under the buildings alongside this street so it is not exactly true since you would have to measure from the basement level of those buildings and not the street level. The basement level is probably 6-8 meters lower than the street level.

Anyway, El Coll-La Teixonera L5 is the deepest Metro station in Barcelona.

Until the station seen in the beginning of this clip is opened in 202X. Then it will only be the second deepest

Same goes for encyclopedias... any schmuck who happens to work there can tell you the moon is made of cheese... at least Wikipedia would have to provide sources for such 'facts'

It is always better to check official websites than Wikipedia!

Also updated encyclopedias are much better than Wikipedia!

Bad news and bad present for my birthday:
http://www.elperiodico.com/es/notici...mpaign=portada

The central section of Barcelona metro L9/10, from La Sagrera to Collblanc, has been stopped yesterday "sine die". They are removing the TBM from the tunnel!

The section from BCN Airport to Collblanc is expected to open in 2015.
The section from Zona Franca to Collblanc is expected to open in 2016.

Anyway, I do not believe these dates, there is no money and the politicians will delay dates again...

So sad!

This news are NOT officially confirmed, and we donīt know the details, so this is why I hadnīt posted this before (and maybe I wouldnīt have posted this at all).
Itī s not wise to claim this just because just one newspaper (and not the most reliable of all) has said so.
Iīd rather not play the drama queen yet, before knowing any other data.

Better wait and see.

L4-Ciutadella-Vila Olímpica.

Open since 1977.
In summer itīs one of the ten busiest stations, as itīs the nearest to the beach.

Quote:
TMB will have to spend €100,000 to upgrade the station, which right now looks like the toilet of a punk club, so many graffittis.

I am not a drama queen, I am realistic. Get well informed:
Central strecht of line 9 not to be finished until 2033 approx. Read this:
http://www.btv.cat/btvnoticies/2013/...-15-o-20-anys/

A metro line that was going to be made in 4 years (from 2000 to 2004) is going to take more than 30 years to be finished...

I never understood why TMB removed the tiles from the walls and painted the ceiling in black!

Why so upset? this is "normal" in Barcelona metro history.

*Tunnel under Via Laietana built 1911 to 1916, open 1926
*L1 delayed 16 years (Marina - San Andreu) 1938 - 1954
*L2 delayed 25 years (Sagrada Familia - Parallel)
*L3 delayed 24 years (concession for construction given 1907, construction begin 1921 line open 1924)
*L7 delayed 25 years (construction start 1921, ready to open 1929, open 1954)

I'm sure there are more...
