Gorg is a Barcelona Metro lines 2 and 10 and Trambesòs station located in the neighbourhood of the same name of Badalona, on Avinguda del Marquès de Mont-Roig and very close to Palau Municipal d'Esports de Badalona, the home arena of the professional basket club Joventut de Badalona. It is served by TMB-operated Barcelona Metro lines 2 and 10, and Trambesòs route T5.

History

The first station in Gorg was opened on 22 April 1985, when Barcelona Metro line 4 opened its platforms with the extension of this line from La Pau to Pep Ventura stations. On 1 October 2003, the Barcelona Metro line 4 section from La Pau to Pep Ventura was transferred to Barcelona Metro line 2 and because of this change, the station was rehabilited and adapted for disabled persons by installing escalators and elevators.

On 8 September 2007, with the extension of Trambesòs network from Sant Adrià de Besòs to Badalona, Gorg stop was opened and became the terminus station of Trambesòs in Badalona. It was planned to open the station a few months earlier, but due to several complaints from neighbors to relocate the electric substation that feeds the line, its opening was delayed for several times. Until 15 June 2008, the station was served only by route T5, but with the opening of the branch via La Mina, route T6 began serving the station, allowing access to Sant Adrià de Besòs railway station from Gorg. Since 20 February 2012 and due to a restructuring of the network, route T6 no longer serves the station and instead of finishing in Gorg, it does it at Glòries.

Barcelona Metro line 10 arrived at the station on 18 April 2010, with the opening of the line from this station to Bon Pastor. The President of the Generalitat presided the inauguration ceremony of the station and travelled from this station to Bon Pastor to inaugurate this new branch of the line in Badalona. The initial forecast was to open the station in 2004 and later in 2008, but given the setbacks did not become operational until 2010.
