Disruptions to mobility due to resurfacing work in AugustThe work will help improve safety in different roads in the city, such as the tunnels in Maria Cristina and the Ronda del General Mitre, Plaça d’Alfons Comín, the bus lanes in Travessera de Gràcia, Av. Diagonal and Via Laietana.
The work is being carried out in the summer to make the most of the period when mobility is at its lowest and to reduce the impact and inconvenience caused to local people.
Tunnels in Maria Cristina and Ronda del General Mitre
Resurfacing will be carried out from 8 August (10 am) to 9 August (5 pm), with the tunnels completely closed to traffic.
Descending traffic will be diverted using the side lane of the Ronda del General Mitre. Ascending traffic will be diverted using the Ronda del Mig exit in Av. Diagonal.
Plaça d’Alfons Comín
Resurfacing work will affect the upper side of the roundabout between the junction with C/ Esteve Terrades and access 6 to the Ronda de Dalt. The work will be carried out on 7 and 8 August.
The upper half of the roundabout will be closed to traffic, as will access 6 to the Ronda de Dalt in both directions. The road surface nearest the mountain in Pg. Vall d’Hebron will also be closed between Carretera de l’Arrabassada and C/ Collserola from 8 am to 12 noon on 8 August, as will the access lanes to Pg. Vall d’Hebron.
Traffic will also be cut in a section of C/ Collserola (going towards the sea) and a section of C/ Esteve Terrades (uphill). There will also be an exclusive access point for local people in C/ Ticià and C/ Gomis.
The work will affect the usual routes of bus services H2, H4, V17, V19, 123, 124 and 131. The bus-stops around the roundabout and in the section of Pg. Vall d’Hebron as far as Av. Vallcarca will be out of use.
The bus lane in Travessera de Gràcia, between C/ Balmes and C/ Santaló, will be resurfaced from 3 to 11 August. Traffic will also be cut in the adjacent lane in the other direction and in C/ Casanova, between Av. Diagonal and Travessera de Gràcia. The D40 and 27 bus services will be diverted using C/ Balmes, Av. Diagonal and Plaça de Francesc Macià.
Elsewhere, the bus lane in Av. Diagonal between Plaça de Maria Cristina and C/ Pere Duran Farell will be renewed on 22 and 23 August. Three lanes in the Llobregat direction will be affected. The side lane nearest the mountain in Av. Diagonal will also be closed to traffic from Plaça de Pius XII and at the junctions with C/ Doctor Ferran and C/ Pere Duran Farell.
Work in Via Laietana also means mobility restrictions from 3 August to 4 October. Work on the pavement will last from 3 August to 2 October, starting from the side nearest the Llobregat and progressing uphill. Work on the road surface will be carried out over eight weekends, from 8 August to 4 October. At least one lane of traffic in each direction will be guaranteed at all times, with access also allowed to existing entrances.
