Line 9/10 will arrive to Barcelona Airport in 2013, 1 year delayed due to economical recession.

Santa Rosa station of line 9 will open this Summer.
No more metro openings until 2013, when 22 or more stations will be open.

A video shot by jasper hermsen from inside one of the tunnel boring machines drilling the new L9/L10. The site is the tunnel between Guinardó/Hospital de Sant Pau station (the 80 meter deep shaft one see in the beginning) and Lesseps station.

I enjoyed that video very much. I particularly liked the portion showing the concrete panels being inserted... and special placement for the last one that makes a ring.

Los Angles will be initiating construction on a couple tunnels in the next few years. One tunnel for the Regional Connector project located in downtown Los Angeles, and the other for the Westside Subway Extesnion along Wilshire Boulevard. The video helps me imagine construction in the tunnel boring segments.

I will be travelling to Barcelona in August. One month from now. I was there last year at this time too. Have any new lines or extensions opened since August 2010?

Is there any new news concerning the line extension to Terrassa? I believe it is the S1 line. It is only 3-4 stations.

I have been tracking a another web page that provides more information about the Barcelona lines and projects. Unfortunately, I was stymied. I couldn't read because they were written in Spanish. But, I just found a Google Translation option.

Learned, or confirmed, the Terrasa Line, S1, will not open until next year. I am looking forward to this line because a station is near some property my family owns and getting into Barcelona should be much much easier once it opens.

A new station will open this september, according to a Twit by the authorities (can´t remember which though).
Its name will be Santa Rosa, and it will be located on line L9 (orange), right between the Can Peixauet and Fondo stations.

The entrance of Santa Rosa station is a "semi-building" under a square-park. It is nice!

New L9 Santa Rosa station just opened today. It is located between existing Fondo and Can Peixauet stations, in the municipality of Santa Coloma de Gramanet. The new station has opened almost 2 years later than the rest of the line due to a delay in its construction. Not only a new station has opened, but also an urbanistic plan has been developed, with a new square just above the metro station.

The construction of L9 and L10 of Barcelona Metro has been almost stopped by the new president of Generalitat de Catalunya, due to economical recession and lack of funds.

no overlaying!

I think 2013's the 150th anniversary of the advent of the Metropolitan, such that I wonder if any good book'll be published on the world's metros

It was the first electrical railway at Spain (Pz Cataluña-Sarriá)

Come on, it was a totally above ground line, with spanish gauge and even tram sections (near Plaça Catalunya). Moreover, in the beginning the line was operated with steam trains, not electric. It cannot be considered as a proper metro line until 1929, with the opening of the underground section between Plaça Catalunya and Muntaner.

I know, but the old Sarrià line in Barcelona was just a normal railway, 100% above ground (street level with crossings, not viaduct), spanish gauge and steam trains. It was an urban railway, of course, but there was no difference with the rest of railways that exited in that time in the city, so I don't know why it should be considered a metro line.

Later it was extended to Terrassa and Sabadell, regauged to standard gauge (because they also planned to extend the line to France), electrified and put underground (in three different fases during the 20's, 50's and 70's). Finally, two urban branches were added (to Av. Tibidabo in 1954 and to Reina Elisenda in 1976) and it became a true metro line.

Well... back to reality, a few days ago the Barcelona metro inaugurated a new station.
It´s located on line L9 (orange), between the stations Can Peixauet and Fondo, and its name is Santa Rosa.
Pictures, anyone?
