Barça is not enjoying having to play this entire season, and presumably the next, in the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium in Montjuïc as local. The new Camp Nou, once it is finished, will be unbeatable, but the wait seems agonizing for the club and its fans. and Any method to shorten construction deadlines will be well received..
However, at Barcelona’s town hall his pulse has not trembled at the time of fine the culé entity for carrying out part of the Camp Nou work outside the established schedule and agreed with the council. These are two fines, up to 300 euros eachafter a routine inspection of the works was carried out last Thursday that confirmed the suspicions.
In this review, “unauthorized activity” was detected between midnight and one in the morning. Previously, in another inspection in August, they also discovered work on the construction site after hours. For this reason, the Urban Police have had no choice but to financially sanction the club, which is in charge of hiring the company that is carrying out the works and ensuring that all the required protocols and requirements are met.
Both Barça and the City Council are already working together to correct those after-hours activities and strictly control that all relevant regulations and standards are complied with. In fact, in the coming days, those most affected by the situation (the neighbors) have been called to a meeting to clarify everything that happened and for Barça to give them “the explanations that are necessary.”
One of those neighbors, in statements to Cadena SER Catalunya, confirmed the situation that is being experienced these days in the Les Corts neighborhood with the works: “I take the dog down between 11 and 12 at night. I’ve seen people working at the Camp Nou, yes.” A small obstacle, the first of many surely, that is already beginning to hinder works against the clock that are vital for the economic viability of Barça.

The lack of security measuresLikewise, it has also caught the attention of many Internet users. A clip of the demolition of the upper stands of the Camp Nou, in which a huge piece of concrete fell into the void after falling from its restraints while transporting, it went viral in ‘X’, and since then many have questioned the professionalism and safety of the work in an environment as dangerous as the Blaugrana stadium, with obvious structural problems.
Even so, the original Camp Nou inaugurated in 1957 It enjoys the ‘C’ classification by the architectural heritage of the Barcelona City Council, which implies that can’t be taken down completely. The municipal plans establish four levels of protection, ‘A’ being cultural assets of national interest, untouchable buildings such as Gaudí’s Casa Batlló; while the ‘B allows some room for maneuver for reforms. The Camp Nou, in ‘C’, It is considered an asset of urban interest, and therefore cannot be demolished.
