The opening ceremony was attended by the mayor of Sabadell, Mr Juli Fernández, FGC’s president, Mr Enric Ticó; infrastructure president of the Generalitat, Mr Joan James Olmos, and delegate of the government in Barcelona, Mr Miguel Angel Escobar.
People were able to use the extension, which serves Can Feu-Gràcia and Plaça Major stations, free of charge after the opening ceremony. Scheduled services will begin on September 13.
A further 3.7km section and three stations will open in spring 2017, extending the line to Ca n’Oriac-Parc del Nord as well as a depot at Ca n’Oriac. The project represents a total investment of €430m.
