ADIF awards WSP Spain the rehabilitation of the iconic Plaza de Cataluña station in Barcelona

ADIF has awarded WSP Spain the consultancy and technical assistance services for the drafting of the basic and construction project for the refurbishment of the Plaza de Cataluña intermodal station in Barcelona. This is one of the nerve centers of the city: a multimodal interchange under the square of the same name that connects some of the city’s backbone roads, such as Paseo de Gracia, Rambla de Catalunya, and the Universitat and San Pedro ring roads.

It is also the terminus of Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat lines, a junction point for Barcelona’s metro lines 1 and 3, and a transit point for several suburban and medium-distance lines. One of the goals of the project is to convert the station into a near-zero energy consumption building.
