You understood it. Do not be so fussy!

No, I didn't, I'm not all that good at technical English. I was hesitating between that and the entrances or ticket halls...

In particular because he called them "magnificent". They're just big holes in the ground to me. I thought he might be talking about stations like Fira or so...

Don't worry about your english, i have trouble saying the right things, which often results in using the wrong words.

I suffer braindamage, explains why i'm moody, suffer from bad memory, can't plan complex things (like using A foreign language like english)

The only reason, it's still pretty good, is because my former neighbours parents where english-natives and I used to be really good at learning and understanding language.

My Portugese, Spanish, Brazilian, German, French, Italian & even Dutch at some times suck b.i.g time


About calling it A portal, your right, someone can call it A portal, it is -of course- A portal to the other (big) tunnel.
So technically, your not wrong.

The portal(s)/entrance(s) are too large in citycenters if you don't want to demolish anything..
Do all stations of L9/L10 have one of these portals? Or are stations present with A second one?

Well, as far as I remember, on the section that's open, all but three do.
The three that don't are Bon Pastor, Gorg and Can Zam.

On the new section (including the L10 branch), all but Europa-Fira, Fira and Aeroport T1 do.

Not sure about Aeroport T2, though.

In at least the four cases I marked, there was a tunnel entrance during the works, a big round hole on the floor.
The fact that the stations have another configuration and are not deep-level changes anything?

@Davroca5 & 437.001:

Thank you both, there's my bad memory at work again..

I've seen photos of stations at grade on A regular basis, I still forgot at the time of posting..

What I (probably/hopefully), meant was: 'do all underground stations have just 1 of these drilled/bored portals, or are there any stations with more than one?'

No station has more than one of those portals, some don't even have one as they're built with a different system.

Until what age is public transport in Barcelona free? We'll be traveling there with a six year old in a few weeks...

According to this Catalan government press release dated 15-05-2009, starting of the tunneling of the second tunnel was imminent while tunneling of the first tunnel would finish in the spring of 2010, actual breakthrough was in February 2010.

The original opening of S1 extension in Terrassa was scheduled for 2011.

This is however nothing strange for Barcelona, practically all metro extension have been delayed, either by lack of funding or by lack of planning or usually both. I can't remember a single case when metro construction was on time and budget.
