Francesc Macià station

Also it is planned to be a Barcelona Metro station, which is due to be served by Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC) L8, as part of the station's enlargement towards Gràcia. It would be located on the Plaça de Francesc Macià, in the district of Sarrià-Sant Gervasi.[1] Since this area is one of the few left without a direct metro connection after the completion of L9 and L10, it has been demanded by the neighbours and has featured in some of the ambitious proposals for transportation in the city since the 1960s. Namely in the projects for a line VI and for a Diagonal line.[2]

The current project to enlarge line L8 would connect that line with the Trambaix tram system, and it would connect Plaça d'Espanya and some areas of the metropolitan area of Barcelona it goes through with this square.
