Barcelona is building the new L9 in the metro network. It will be the longest metro line of Europe, with a total of 46.6 km and will transport about 90 million passengers per year.
One of its 52 stops will be next to the FC Barcelona Stadium. Nowadays, locals and tourist who want to visit the FCB Museum or attend a football match in Camp Nou, have to use the stops Collblanc L5 or Les Corts L3 and walk some minutes.
The new L9 will be inaugurated partially this year and will be fully functional in year 2012. Thirty of the 52 stations will follow the same pattern, a cylindrical well with a superior hall connected to the street and a underground hall connected to the platforms. Trains circulate in two different levels. Where it is not possible to excavate deep, the metro stops will adopt the conventional design or will be above surface on a viaduct.
