Additionally, the plan involves the construction of two emergency exits, one at the junction of Consell de Cent and Comte Urgell, and the other at the intersection of Muntaner and Mariá Cubí streets.

Three new stations will be built on the newly built stretch of line. The Gràcia and Plaça Espanya stations will be refurbished.

The second is the Llobregat-Anoia terminal, part of one of Barcelona’s primary transit interchanges, where numerous FGC lines and Barcelona’s Metro lines 1 and 3 intersect.

Plaça Espanya Station will be upgraded via the extension of two of its four tracks, widening the vestibule, as well as rearranging various entrances and connections between floors.
