There will be a total of 28 stations, 11 of which link to metro and suburban rail stations, plus a facilities building will be constructed. The structure consists mainly of at-grade track and is completely integrated with Barcelona's main public transport network. The fleet consists of eighteen 32.5-m long carriages with capacity for 230 passengers.
Almost the entire layout of the LRT runs through the downtown core of Barcelona, Spain's second-largest city and one of the most densely populated cities in Europe.
The project involves the design, construction, financing, operations and maintenance as well as the provision of rolling stock. Payments are based on an availability mechanism until handover in 2032.
The project is currently operational, since construction completion in 2008.
