Montjuïc. Until February 2023 there will be various disruptions to mobility on Doctor Font i Quer, Can Valero and Passeig del Migdia due to the need to open up trenches on these streets.

From November 2022 to February 2023 there will be a number of disruptions to mobility on the streets Doctor Font i Quer, Can Valero and Passeig del Migdia due to the digging of the trenches needed for the laying of fibre optic cables to link the existing network at the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium to Montjuïc Castle.

The works programme has been divided into five sections:

  1. C. Doctor Doctor Font i Quer: one of two possible stretches, to be confirmed:
    a. Along the pavement on the ‘sea side’, which would not affect the circulation of either pedestrians or vehicles.
    b. Along the carriageway: this would mean the closure of one traffic lane, with the other being used as an alternative for traffic in both directions, with traffic lights.
  2. C. Can Valero, from 21/11/2022 to 19/12/2022: closing the lane on the Llobregat side, establishing one lane of traffic in the direction of the sea. The diversion for the ‘direction mountain’ lane will be via Passeig del Migdia – C. Tarongers – C. Tres Pins – C. Doctor Font i Quer. Bus route 150 will still be in operation, but stops 3774 and 2325 will be closed consecutively, depending on which stretch of the street is being worked on (never both stops at the same time).
  3. Passeig del Migdia, from 2/01/2023 al 6/02/2023: the ‘sea side’ lane will be closed, and a lane will be designated for traffic heading in the direction of Besòs. The diversion follows the same route as in the previous section.
  4. C. Castell: on dates yet to be confirmed, this street will be partially closed from Passeig del Migdia on. Stop 2315 will be out of use, and there will be a temporary stop by the entrance to the cable car.
  5. Work within the castle area between 2/01/2023 and 6/02/2023: this will not affect the circulation of pedestrians or vehicles.
