Sant Joan Funicular out of duty due to maintenance work on the machine room until March 16th 2018
FGC renews the engine room of the Funicular de Sant Joan. As of November 2, and until March 16, 2018, the funicular will be out of service while the renovation works are being carried out.
Specifically, FGC changes the entire main drive of the infrastructure, installing a new system consisting of a pulley, a counter-politician, a reducer, a brake system and a three-phase motor. The new installation also includes the renovation of all the electrical equipment associated with the system, as well as that of the funicular control room. The pulleys of the track are also replaced. These actions, with an investment of 2.2 million euros, allow improving the funicular quality standards and minimizing the number of stops or breakdowns in the usual service.
