Work gets under way to dismantle the Marina access ramp and create a large square of 8,000 m2 at the Moll de Mestral wharf


The process to dismantle the former vehicle entrance completes the steps taken to improve the Port Olímpic’s connection with the city and the beaches

The transformation of the Port Olímpic continues, connecting it with the city and making it accessible to the people of Barcelona. To that end, work is now under way to dismantle the vehicle access ramp in C/ Marina. 

The work should be completed in the spring, freeing up 1,000 m2 of space at the port in order to complete the project to turn the Moll de Mestral wharf into a large square of 8,000 m2. This new public space will offer areas of shade and places to spend time in, open to all, including port users.  

In parallel to the dismantling of the ramp, the coming weeks will also see work get under way on the new layout of the steps providing pedestrian access, also from C/ Marina, completing the measures to ensure the permeability of the Port Olímpic with its surroundings. This process began with the new slip road giving pedestrian and vehicle access from Av. Litoral, and opening up the entrance that will connect the new restaurant area with the Nova Icària beach.

The space freed up by the dismantling of the ramp will be a point of attraction at the Port Olímpic, hosting activities aimed at the general public and bringing vitality to sports, social and business activity in the local area.
