L9 | Southern extension (Zona Universitaria-Aeroport T1).

Cèntric station.

Located at El Prat de Llobregat (greater Barcelona).

Some of us think it would be better if it were called "El Prat Centre" instead.

L9 | Southern extension (Zona Universitaria-Aeroport T1).

Parc Nou station.

Located at El Prat de Llobregat (greater Barcelona).

NOT to be mistaken by Camp Nou.

This station serves one of the worst suburbs in greater Barcelona.

It is strongly advised not to use this station after dark.

Btw, the quarter is called "Sant Cosme", and many of us would like this station to be called this way, not "Parc Nou".

L9 | Southern extension (Zona Universitaria-Aeroport T1).

Aeroport T2 station.

Connection to Rodalies Renfe commuter rail line R2.

Located next to Aeroport railway station.

If you arrive here by train, and you're going to T1, you must take L9 here.

And if you're coming from T1, and you're going to Sants railway station to get your AVE or TGV, or further north towards places like Granollers or Sant Celoni, you must change here, too.

how much does it cost to go from T2 to T1 using the subway? IMHO they should distribute free tickets to transfer from one terminal to the other, what's the point of keeping those buses and drivers if there's already an automatic train linking both terminals

4.5€, the same price that going from the airport to Barcelona, as there's no reduced fare for metro trips between both terminals.

L10 | Southern extension (Can Tries Gornal-Zona Franca ZAL).

This video had already been posted, but it's interesting since it shows all the L10 south stations but one.

This will be the next extension of the Barcelona metro to open, or at least part of what appears on the video will definitely be.

Currently L10 south is in service, but only as a technical branch.

We still don't know wether it will open in one go or not.



0:45 the train leaves Zona Franca ZAL depot
0:56 Zona Franca-ZAL station
1:02 Zona Franca-Port station
1:08 Zona Franca-Litoral station
1:16 Motors station?
1:21 Foc station (aka Foc Cisell, future connection to L2)
1:26 Foneria station
1:31 Ildefons Cerdà station (future connection to FGC)
1:37 Provençana station
1:43 Can Tries Gornal junction with the L9 south, now in service.

No, the metro belongs to Generalitat (regional government), the free buses belong to AENA (managed by Spanish government). Different managers for different services.
The metro is not a shuttle for the terminals, it is a mean of public transportation to go to Barcelona city and all the towns of Great Barcelona.
The free buses are an airport mean of transportation between all terminals, and it's free of charge because of that!

I guess, you are right, because Motors will be a ghost station and will not be opened with the rest of Line 10 Sud. Because of lack of development around the station, station will open at the later date

The user @DavidVazGuijarro has posted this amazing timelapse video in the catalan phorum. In the real life it takes 32 minutes to travel from Zona Universitària to Aeroport T1, in this video just 5. Enjoy it!

The problem is that the area around Motors station is being developed by now.
Now there's both businesses and housing, and that will only grow.

The Zona Franca neighbours claim for its opening, while they couldn't care less about the viaduct stations that serve the industrial area.

Which in a way it's understandable, since this is the last big area in inner Barcelona that is devoid of tramway, metro or commuter rail.

So I wouldn't be so sure about Motors station not opening.
It may not open along with the more advanced ones, but it could also get a sudden impulse to its construction.

Or not. We'll see.

Most likely metro extensions after L9 south and L10 south.

These are the three extensions I find the most likely to come after the current L9 south and L10 south work is complete.

L9/L10 north Sagrera-Guinardó (inside blue area)
Probably the following extension after L10 south.
It's the second most advanced section of the unopened sections, the first being L10 south.





L4 La Pau-Sagrera (inside blue area)
In blue the part that's still not built.
The rest is already in service, be it as provisory terminus for L9/L10 north, be it as technical branch for L2 and L4 to get to the Triangle depot.





L3 Trinitat Nova-Trinitat Vella
There's nothing started in this extension.
But it's a short section (only one station), and it would give lots of passengers, as it would connect neighbouring areas that are badly linked.
Of all the metro extensions, it is the one with the highest ratio cost/benefit, as not only it would generate new passengers by itself, but would also make other stations already in service generate new passengers.

Is there any plan for the future to build a subway line under Sierra Colserosa, linking it with San Cugat del Vallés, Mirasol and Rubi?

After all, Barcelona suffers from excessive population density in the lowland built-up area and would be served well with some exurban transit-oriented development beyond the mountains with a cluster of skyscrapers in these cities.

FGC already fulfills this "metro" function with its Barcelona - Vallès line: there are trains every 6 minutes or even less in rush hours between Barcelona and Sant Cugat, where two branches diverge: S1 to Terrassa and S2 to Sabadell.

Therefore there's no need to build a brand-new metro line under the "Serra de Collserola". Besides, Sant Cugat, Rubí or Sant Quirze are too far from Barcelona to be served by a proper metro line; the Collserola mountain range is an important obstacle separating Barcelona from the Vallès area. FGC works like an S-Bahn or suburban rail line with very good headways.

However, it is true that there have been some vague long-term plans (or just politicians promising things, who knows...) to build a second FGC line under Collserola, although it would probably link Glòries or Sagrera in Barcelona with Cerdanyola del Vallès and Universitat Autònoma on the FGC Sabadell line, via Mundet (L3).

Just check this map:

http://www.urbanrail.net/eu/es/bcn/bcn-region-map.htm

PS: Vallès Occidental (the county where Sant Cugat, Rubí, Terrassa, Sabadell and Cerdanyola are located, among others) already has 900,000 inhabitants. I mean, there are already lots of people living there! It's not like farmland and forests at all, the area is full of business and industrial parks, universities and research campuses, big cities (Sabadell and Terrassa have 200,000 inhabitants each) and thousands of jobs. It will likely grow in the future, but I don't see any skyscrapers clusters there given that the "lowland" still has plenty of space to grow, especially in old industrial areas that are being renovated (Poblenou, Plaça Europa in L'Hospitalet, the area around the future Sagrera station, etc.).
