Catalonia transport infrastructure plan 2006-2026

The Department has drawn up the Transport Infrastructure Plan for Catalonia (PITC) with the aim of defining in an integrated manner the network of road, rail and logistics infrastructures necessary for Catalonia with the time horizon of 2026, and intends to extend it with the rest of the infrastructures, port and airport in the short term, in order to constitute a complete infrastructure plan for Catalonia.

This Plan continues the interrupted tradition of infrastructure planning in Catalonia. The first two infrastructure plans, that of the Commonwealth of Catalonia (1922) and the General Public Works Plan (1935), could not be implemented due to political circumstances beyond the plans. The 1985 Road Plan (revised in 1995) has thus been the first and the only land infrastructure plan that normally runs out of time.

The PITC has the character of a sectoral territorial plan, in accordance with Law 23/1983, of November 21, on territorial policy, and a specific plan for the purposes of what is established in Law 9/2003, of June 13, on the mobility.

Urban Master Plan for Modal Exchange Parking

The efficient management of public transport - private vehicle modal interchange parking can be an excellent opportunity to reduce congestion and effectively improve the growing mobility in and out of people in the urban environment of Barcelona and its adjacent municipalities, and thus reduce congestion and harmful environmental effects. If current data confirm that the maximum number of intercity trips by private vehicle has continued to increase in recent years and the average distance traveled for each trip are increasing, offer the possibility of parking the private vehicle in an efficient network of car parks Modal exchange public transport

Consequently, mobility in the Metropolitan Region of Barcelona and in Catalonia as a whole tends to be increasingly complex, with a longer travel distance and an increase in intermodality. This circumstance, together with the progressive congestion of the road network, translates into a greater use of the private vehicle-rail mode modal chains, and therefore, of the public transport-private vehicle modal interchange car parks.

In this sense, the general objective of the Urban Master Plan is to create the appropriate urban and territorial framework that allows exploiting the potential of the public transport interchanges - private vehicle defined in the Master Plan for public transport infrastructures of the metropolitan region of Barcelona 2011 -2020 (PDI) located in suburban railway stations, RENFE-ADIF and Ferrocarriles de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC) and in some bus stops, to respond to the growing demand for this type of car park.

The Plan must also be the instrument that defines the objectives to achieve the sustainable development of Catalonia, the territorial balance and the preservation of the environment ".

The General Territorial Plan of Catalonia articulates the proposals in three lines of action:

the definition of strategies
the definition of the territorial model
guidelines for formulating plans.


In the line of strategies, the section on quality of life is the most relevant as it details the actions to be taken on issues such as equipment or the environment in order to promote the quality of life in the territory. In the definition of the territorial model, the objective image of the population in 2026 and the proposal systems are presented as tools to achieve objectives of impulse, rebalancing or enhanced development, while in the section of guidelines for the formulation of plans the determinations are related that the Territorial Plan assigns to the other planning figures and that they will be the ones that should specify the PTGC's proposals since they do not have a direct physical application on the territory.

The PTGC must establish the necessary guidelines for the coherence of the partial territorial plans and the sectoral territorial plans that they must develop.

Synthesis of partial territorial plans

The synthesis of the partial territorial plans shown here facilitates the perception of the spatial planning of Catalonia that results from the set of approved plans. The 10 plans that make up this synthesis have been obtained by recasting the determinations of the partial territorial plans corresponding to each of the variables that, together, define the organization of the territorial space.
The synthesis expresses the general coherence of the partial territorial plans approved, and provides a vision of the planning of the territory of Catalonia that emerges from the set of these plans.
The synthesis plans have no normative value. This is exclusive to the documents that make up each partial territorial plan, which must be consulted in case of doubt.
