The tunnel that is built in Barcelona’s Plaça de les Glòries to bury the Gran Via will be passable next September in the direction of leaving the city. The forecast is that it will also open in the direction of the city in November. This has been explained by the Deputy Mayor for Ecology, Urban Planning and Mobility Janet Sanz to the neighboring entities of the environment and confirmed this Thursday.
The drilling of the tunnel is scheduled to be completed this January at the most delicate point, under old railway infrastructures that have had to be reinforced. In parallel, however, the tunnel development works can advance.
“The civil works have been completed and in a difficult year with stoppages due to the covid, the works have advanced,” said Sanz and assured that “in this mandate Glòries will not only have a park that is advancing but we will be able to have a good part of the mobility we want, with the tram interchange ”.
Sanz explained that the government commission has approved this Thursday the Urban Improvement Plan that orders the equipment and its volume. Finally, any building with up to 20 floors is discarded and finally the maximum it will have will be 11. The Gaia school, today in barracks, will finally be located in the building of the old umbrella factory, where a VET school was planned.
