Issues of Metropolitan passages

The needs of connections and passages are a major challenge for the municipalities of the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona, in order to cross rivers, connect disctricts separated by a variety of infrastrctures which appear as real frontiers (i.e. the railway along that prevent the access to the sea, metropolitan parks, highway interchanges absorbed by urbanization, interconnections between neighborhoods ...).

Àera Metropolitana de Barcelona : Ramón Torra, Noemí Garcia, Loles Herrero, Helena Sanz
