Line 9 (Línia 9 in Catalan) is a line of the Barcelona Metro network that is currently under construction, with five stations open in the Santa Coloma de Gramenet suburb since December 2009. Upon completion, it will be the longest automatic train operation (i.e. driverless vehicle) metro line in Europe.

Lines 9 and 10[edit]

Station of Line L9.

The complete project encompasses an underground line with two branches spanning a good deal of the metropolitan area of Barcelona, crossing Barcelona, Santa Coloma de Gramenet, Badalona, l'Hospitalet de Llobregat and El Prat de Llobregat. Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona is the company operating the line.[1]

The name line 9 (L9) can refer either to the whole project of L9/L10 or to the common trunk plus the L9 branches. The total system will have a length of 47.8 km, of which 43.71 underground and 4.09 on viaducts. L9/L10 will be the deepest line in the Barcelona network.[2]

Line 9 shares its route with L10 for a large part, but the lines will not run on the same tracks: rather, double tunnels will be built.

Originally expected to be ready by 2008, ongoing problems with its construction delayed its expected completion until as late as 2013-2014. Unfortunately, it has been delayed yet again to 2016.[3]

On 13 December 2009,[4] the section between Can Peixauet and Can Zam, with the exception of Santa Rosa station, opened to the public. A further station, Bon Pastor, opened on 18 April 2010; as the first section of L10 was opened. The section from La Sagrera to Bon Pastor (except Sagrera station) opened on 26 June 2010.
