We don't really have a High Line in its full concept, since we never built elevated railways in Barcelona. However, the most similar thing we have is the Jardins de la Rambla de Sants, which is a garden promenade built on top of a concrete deck, over the surface railways.

What's going on with this?

Built-Out Barcelona Makes Space for an Urban Forest
on Monday, the city nonetheless rolled out a paradigm-shifting re-greening program, one that will double the number of trees in the city, increase park space by two thirds, and give each citizen an extra square meter of green areas. The urban plan, which will deliver 108 acres of new green space by 2019 and over 400 acres by 2030 is a model of ingenuity that could serve as a model for other cities.

This is the City Council's plan to increase the total green space of Barcelona, which is one of the main lacks of Barcelona. However, most of these measures are related into improving rooftops, walls and cooperative market gardens, raise awareness about having plants in the balconies, etc. These 108 acres of green areas is the total sum of these measures, not only parks.

WEB (catalan): http://ajuntament.barcelona.cat/ecol...tructura-verda

This means there are different ways to make a greener city, and this plan considers 3: Increase of green infrastructure, improvements of the existing infrastructure and corresponsibility with the caring of this infrastructure.

Line 1. Increase of green infrastructure

The main objectives for 2019 are:

- New parks: +21,3 ha.

- Road / Sidewalk renovation: +13,8 ha.

- City blocks interior green areas: +5 ha.

- Empty plots: + 3,2 ha.

- Green roofs: +0,54 ha.

- Walls and party walls: +0,38 ha.



Line 2. Improvements of green infrastructure

Different measures to improve the current infrastructure:

- Naturalize existing green areas.

- Increase the number of trees and bushes in existing parks, gardens and public space.

- Raise of flora and fauna in empty plots without use.

- Improvements in natural spaces like Tres Turons.

- New spaces for urban fauna: Beehives, insect hotels, nest boxes, wood pyramids...

- Naturalization of decorative ponds to improve the biodiversity.

- Promotion of natural water sources: springs, mines, aquifer.

- Urban Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS) to increase water retention, treatment and drainage.



Line 3. Corresponsibility with the caring of urban nature

- New parcels for social entities' market gardens.

- Schools for the creation of insect hotels.

- Shared maintenance of nest boxes.

- Communal market gardens.

- Bioblitz workshops.

- Opening private gardens to public.

- Encouragement of volunteering for park conservation and maintenance.

- Schoolar ponds naturalization.



And finally, a city map with the main features of this green plan.

Green Increase and improvement, by city districts

Last prisoners of La Model have been rellocated, before closing the centre

At 11:35 pm on this Thursday, with just over half an hour late from the scheduled time, the last 14 prisoners that were in La Model Prison in Barcelona have abandoned the centre. There were 11 inmates that have gone on a bus and have gone to Brians 1 Prison, and another three have done so in a smaller van and went to the Quatre Camins Prison. Early in the morning there had been gone ten more. Since 1984, when the government assumed the responsibility of La Model, 67 000 prisoners had passed. But in 1984 the prison was already 80 years in service, and Justice does not count the prisoners who passed through the prison them before they assumed its control, although the prison opened 113 years ago.

The offensive against pollution begins

Barcelona City Council’s Air Quality Roundtable met this afternoon to take stock of the series of measures presented six months ago to combat air pollution, and to outline operational proposals in the event of an air pollution episode in the city. Vehicle restrictions are envisaged as from 1 December this year to cut pollution levels and get them below those recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
