Sant Vicenç Railway Urban Integration
Service: Feasibility Study
Client: GISA – Infrastructure Administration of Catalonia
GPO was awarded by GISA with the Feasibility Study and the Environmental Report of the urban integration of the railway in the city of Sant Vicenç dels Horts, Barcelona. The studied segment, 1.889 m long, was located in a fully consolidated urban environment, with buildings adjacent to the tracks and with all the disadvantages of a railway segment creating an urban opening to the city. The projected solution divides the project into four segments. For the first one (around 500 m long), a covering which gave total access to the urban segment is designed, through a structure compatible with the railway crossing. The other three segments were provided with precise solutions improving the connection between both sides and allowing the visual and acoustic integration of the railway into the city.
