On the 26th of January 2021, the excavation of the tunnel under Glories Square was finished. The new tunnel has been excavated in a consolidated urban area with high presence of existing utilities and under the existing railway tunnels that run under the square.

Specifically, the intervention performed on the 26th of January was carried out under the existing tunnel used by railway lines R3-R4 and R1.

It is expected that the tunnel will come into service during the second half of 2021.

Tec Cuatro is responsible for the works supervision.
