OUR BIKE LANE BETWEEN BARCELONA AND ESPLUGUES IN BTV NEWS
The works on the bike lane between Barcelona and Esplugues de Llobregat are underway. This important project for the Barcelona Metropolitan Área is about to create a cycle network that will connect all municipalities from BCN to Llobregat River Park.
“It’s like putting a thread across impossible places to connect the Diagonal bike line with the city of Esplugues, the Metropolitan Area, Llobregat municipalities & Collserola” – Enric Batlle
Despite the difficulty of connecting some parts of the project, a non-aggressive constructive system will allow the bike lane correct integration. It will cross the slope runs parallel to Diagonal Avenue thanks to a prefabricated walkway and will re-use two existing tunnels to avoid the B-23 and Ronda de Dalt (B-20) highway interchange.
“The bike lane between Barcelona and Esplugues is the first and more emblematic part of all projects needed to make possible the cycling connection from each town to another” – Rossend Bosch, responsible of Sostenible Mobility Projects at the AMB.
Long-term, the project wants to become a cycle network between the 36 metropolitan municipalities, enhancing the sustainable transport and solving the territorial connection for pedestrians and cyclists.
