Barcelona, Spain – The Minister of Territory and Sustainability recently stated that 92 per cent of the Barcelona metro network has been adapted for persons with disabilities, calling it one of the most accessible networks in Europe.

Out of 157 stations along the Barcelona Metro, 144 are already accessible. The project to make the entire network fully accessible will cost an excess of €80 million.

With 92 per cent already accessible, the target of 2024 seems possible. The recent development and work at Jaume 1, one of the metro stations on the network saw platforms evened out to ensure that trains are easier to board. Steps have been removed and replaced by ramps and there are now plans to include a street level lift.

The remaining works will commence in 2021.
