The B:SM Parc de Recerca Biomèdica car park provides direct access to the Claror Marítim Multi Sports Centre
The Multi Sports Centre is operating as a field hospital
B:SM Car Parks continue adapting to facilitate mobility for healthcare staff and are already providing a service to over 1100 vehicles of professionals working at the city’s medical centres
In view of the health emergency resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak, the B:SM Network of Car Parks continues to offer various alternatives to facilitate parking for healthcare professionals and make its contribution to essential mobility.
On the one hand, work on adapting the BSM P.R. Biomèdica car park to provide support for the Claror Marítim sports complex has been completed, since the sports centre has been fitted out as a field hospital during the COVID-19 emergency. Work was carried out on floor -3 (floor -2 of the car park) and involved opening a 180 cm door to link the car park interior with the sports complex through the traffic lane surrounding the pitch from behind. In addition, two plasterboard screens have been put up to separate the car park from the sports complex and facilitate the healthcare teams’ totally independent mobility and ensure health safety for all other users and workers.
The car park will be reserved for the exclusive use of its permit holders for as long as necessary. There will only be pedestrian access through Passeig Marítim de la Barceloneta, with the pedestrian access points along C/ Trelawny and C/ Dr Aiguader (Ronda Litoral) remaining closed.
On the other hand, the list of car parks providing free access for healthcare staff continues to grow according to the needs requested by the various centres. That means there will be daily adaptations, in coordination with managers at the medical centres themselves, to the needs of workers travelling by private vehicle, to contribute to their personal mobility and provide them with free access.
There are currently 15 car parks in the B:SM network which are providing parking places for healthcare professionals, entailing more than 1100 vehicles with an average daily use of 160 (Mondays to Fridays) and 95 uses (weekends). In all, more than 1,800 uses have been recorded since 17 March in the various car parks in the B:SM network.

Access to selected car parks is enabled through licence-plate recognition, previously validated by the management offices, to enable the entry and exit of vehicles at car parks and promote prevention by reducing to a minimum the need for contact, given that the barrier automatically opens for users without their having to stop or take out a ticket.
