Does anyone have information on the Terrassa extension? I believe it is line S1.

As I understand it, the tunel and 2-3 additional are complete. What remains is track and systems work.

I was last in Terrassa this past August. I was also there in August 2010. I don't think I saw much progress between those times.

Has there been any news about new lines or openings over the past 1-2 months? I'll be in Barcelona later tomorrow and thru next 10 days. It would be interesting to know; particularly about the S1 line extension to Terrassa.

Nothing. Almost all projects are stopped right now and there won't be any metro openings before 2014, when the southern part of L9/10 (to the Airport) will be put into service. The construction of the central part of L9/10 is currently suspended due to lack of funds.

Maybe the Terrassa extension of the S1 FGC line will open sooner, but so far there are no fixed dates and nothing is sure.

Unfortunate. I had the understanding that all was left was track and systems. The tunnel and stations were complete, minus furniture.

News regarding the S1 extension to Terrassa; it will open in 2013 (10 years after the works began), as more funds have been provided in the Catalan government budget for this year (165 M €). Currently the works are stopped, but they will be resumed soon. With this money the 3 new stations will be finished, as well as track and other systems.

S2 extension to Sabadell has been postponed to 2015.

Actually they're not as bad as they could seem. Funds have been secured for this project, and that means that works will be resumed later this year. At least we know completion dates, and that's something. For instance, works in central section of L9/10 have been suspended and no completion dates have been given. That's pretty worse.

Really? Central L9/10? That sucks! How about the airport section? That one will be opened soon, right?

It depends on what you understand for "soon"... According to the government, it will open in 2014. Currently airport section is almost ready, it could be opened in a few months... However, L9 trains (to the Airport) will use the depot located in L10 (to the harbour industrial zone), and the connection tunnel between both lines (less than 1 km) has not been dug yet (the TBM had some problems years ago due to the soil, but the problem now is lack of money). As L9 cannot open without trains, we'll have to wait until this short section is finally built to see the opening of the line.

That's really sad, in the Spanish and Catalan threads you can see photographs of the stations, they're 100% ready but their opening is scheduled for 2014 (curiously, when the next Catalan elections will take place).

Terrassa and Sabadell lines are not a real metro, they can be better considered as something like RER in Paris.

could be, only but then these lines don´t continue passing through BCN, they just arrive to plaza catalunya as the main terminal. Consider that if someone goes to Gracia is still underground and used as a metro connection. In that sense its not a RER.

Catalan Government approved to open in 2014 twenty kilometres of Metro line 9 from Zona Universitària to Barcelona Airport (Terminals 1 and 2):


2 stations will not be constructed.

It looks like I am making my annual trek to Barcelona and Terrassa in January 2013. Anyone know of any updates for the Terrassa extension of S1?

Six months ago the construction was halted due to the financial mess Spain is in. The news article stated that the project would cost 427 million euros of which 276 had alredy been spent on construction, thus 151 million euros worth of construction still remain. Of the 276 million spent on construction, the contractors had only receved 78 million so there were 198 million worth of debt.

Before this news they said that there was 1 year left of construction and that the line would open early 2013, now no one knows even when construction will resume. But it is safe to say that before 2014 there will be no metro in Terrassa and probably not before 2015 neither.

Hi there,

Could anyone tell me what the last known pricetag was of Lines 9 and 10, if they completed the both lines in full?
I'm also curious about the 3 depots, would they build new one's? Would the depots be underground aswell?
If they would've (have?) built the depots, underground, what buildingmethod are they using?

Would be nice if someone took the time to answer my questions.

Ow, I forgot, is there A informative website by builders or the city of Barcelona about the building of new lines? (in Spanish)

Thanks again, your effort will be highly appreciated.

In the meantime..
I tried to figure out what the costs are of the line but I'm not sure..
