Today's metro BCN L1 was closed for a few hours because someone jump off to the railways...or at least that was I heard on my way to the airport!

Well, some forumers will know this webpage thanks to the map of the Paris Métro it has:
http://carto.metro.free.fr/cartes/
Since yesterday there's a map of Barcelona's Metro! With planned and U/C sections! http://carto.metro.free.fr/cartes/metro-tram-barcelona/
(There are special thanks to the Polish Catalan forumers who helped in the making of this map).

Update on L9/10:

Click for detailed map.


A detail on 2nd section. Green are stuff built to the date, with middle orange meaning that rails have been laid down.


And finally, which stations are included in each one of the sections. Note that Nou Camp station is actually named Campus Sud:

Anyone know the status of the Barcelona Renfre extension to Terrassa and Sabadell? It's the S2 extension.

Is not RENFE, it's FGC (Catalan Railways). Anyway, I don't know the status.

The Terrassa extension of the FGC (not Renfe) S1 line is scheduled to open next year, likely in December, but the opening date hasn't been fixed yet, so probably it will open a few months later. Anyway the TBM has already finished to dug both tunnels.

The Sabadell extension of the FGC S2 line will open after the Terrassa extension is completed. Maybe in late 2012 or 2013 because the TBM has just started to dig.

Thank you. Is there a website in English that provides more detail?

I am in Los Angeles and recently developed an interest in the work in Barcelona. I also have family that lives in Terrassa and near a station. In fact, I was there recently and it appeared that only the finishing touches were needed at the Terrassa station... the one near a university and hospital and a very nice park.

Terrassa FGC extension opening in 2011.
Sabadell FGC extension opening in 2012.
If there are no new delays, of course!

Thank you.

As for the Line 9 & 10...wow. That line combination weaves and ducks into almost every corner of Barcelona! Couldn't they have selected a more direct route?

Yes, but it seems that our authorities prefer to serve every corner of the metropolitan area with just one line. If you're surprised with L9/10 layout, look at L3 extension project... Even worse!

Anyway, I think that the worse part of L9 layout is the way to the Airport.

I like the look of the new stations in Barcelona! They look quite modern!

L3 extension plan from Zona Universitària to Sant Feliu:



This map also includes L6 extension from Reina Elisenda to Finestrelles - Sant Joan de Déu, where a transfer station between both lines will be build.

L12 doesn't exist anymore... Now the project is:

L6: from (Sarrià) Reina Elisenda to Finestrelles - Sant Joan de Déu
L3: from Zona Universitària to Sant Feliu Centre
In addition, a new underground suburban line will be built from Cornellà Centre to Castelldefels.

These three projects are planned as a substitute for the old L12 project. In my opinion, L6 shouldn't stop in Finestrelles and continue towards Sant Joan Despí, while L3 could go straight to Sant Feliu. It is also important the fact that several tram lines were built during the past decades to serve the same area, so there's no urgent need to build now all these metro extensions.

In a second stage, the new suburban line between Castelldefels and Cornellà will continue to Zona Universitària station in Barcelona, and eventually it will cross the city following the Diagonal avenue til Glòries.
