The high-speed train that can collapse the Sagrada Familia
SIGN-ON SIGN-ON SIGN-ON SOSSAGRADAFAMILIA.ORG
The Spanish government has approved a project for a high-speed train line linking Madrid and Barcelona to pass underground four metres in front of the basilica's main facade on Mallorca avenue. This puts a serious danger the Expiatori Temple of the Sagrada Familia (and the Milà House), the greatest works of the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, in Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain). The building is declared Patrimony of the Humanity by UNESCO. SOSSAGRADAFAMILIA.ORG The following issues must be considered: 1. The vulnerability and the weight of a building as unique as this one. 2. The unstable nature of the foundation of the construction and the underground currents that cross it. 3. The work with the tunnel will put a strain to the Sagrada Familia and its surroundings. The work will last 28 months. 4. Bearing in mind that the monument every day every day every day receives an average of 7.000 daily visits. _________________________
