Avinguda del Vallès
Avinguda del Vallès is a project in the periphery of the Barcelona Metropolitan Area that aims to redesign a 6.5 kilometre stretch of the N-150 trunk road between Montcada i Reixac, Cerdanyola del Vallès, Ripollet and Barberà del Vallès as a new civic, green and commercial corridor, with strong public transport links. The project has therefore undertaken an exhaustive participation process, in which citizens and institutions have cocreated both the diagnosis of the site and the proposal of the actions to be carried out. This process has enabled a rethinking of a better future for this section of the N-150 road, as well as the development of a test bed for “metropolitan avenues” – a key concept in the future Metropolitan Urban Master Plan for Barcelona, towards a more connected and liveable metropolis.
