Rodaliesafter a weekend of relative normality, faces this monday the first weekday with the service alterations generated by the start of a works marathon. The beginning of the works takes place very shortly after the three hour cut of R1the Maresme lineas a result of a fault in the catenary at the height of Badalona. The mood is high, but Renfe, Adif and the Government (owner of the routes and timetables) have been planning what is to come for two years, so it will be necessary rely where everything will go according to plan. All the effects have to do with the trains that pass through the Plaça de Catalunya tunnel. In short, in order to execute the works of the Mediterranean corridorthe transformation of the Molins de Rei stationthe burial of tracks in Sant Feliu de Llobregat and the construction of the Sagrera. All this forces to reprogram several lines. Let’s go by parts.
From 8:00 p.m. on April 23 to 6:00 a.m. on April 24, the road will be cut Come in Castellbisbal and Martorell for all R4 trains (Sant Vicenç de Calders-Manresa). Travelers will have alternative road service.
From then on, the R4 will keep the regular service between Manresa and Terrassa but it will experience changes in Martorell, since the trains that have their origin and end there will now have it in Castellbisbal, with four trains per hour and direction to Terrassa (seven at peak hours) and with a complementary bus service (the line is not cut) between Castellbisbal and Martorell, a section that will become single track until February 2023 due to adaptation to standard gauge traffic, Essential requirements. Indispensable requirements for goods from the Mediterranean corridor.
Line R11 (Barcelona Sants-Portbou) will have origin and end in Montcada i Reixac the day of Sant Jordi. Travelers who have to reach the Catalan capital must change station Rodalies (five minutes walk) to be able to catch a train from the R4 to the big city.
The Mediterranean corridor works generate a important cut in this route. The R8 (Martorell-Granollers Centre) happens to have origin and destination in Rubíwith which the Martorell-Castellbisbal-Rubí section will have, until February 2023, a service of alternative bus.
Also until April 2023, all trains of the R1 (Molins de Rei-Maçanet-Massanes) will have origin and end in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, with which the stops at Molins de Rei, Sant Feliu de Llobregat, Sant Joan Despí and Cornellà are out of service. Travelers have alternative the R4which coincides on this route with the R1 to Arc de Triomf, which will force, in the case of continuing towards the Maresme, to change at a previous station. R1 will have six trains per hour and direction in rush hourfour during the rest of the day.
The R2 Nord airport line It is cut in two and changes its layout on April 23 and 24. To the north, the line will run between Maçanet and Montcada i Reixac. At that point, those who continue to Barcelona will also play change station to take some convoy of lines R4, R7 and R12. Trains to El Prat airport will run from T2 to França station.
All this reprogramming of the trains that pass through the Plaza de Catalunya tunnel will allow the R3 has four more frequencies (two each way) between Barcelona and Vic, and that the R7 (Sant Andreu Arenal-Cerdanyola University) extend four trains to Molins de Rei during the morning rush hourwhich will allow the Autonomous University of Barcelona to connect more and better with the municipalities of Baix Llobregat.
