Stations built in the 70's-80's for the former project of metro, and now adapted to the new one:

Congratulations. It is an excellent opportunity to visit Seville (I have to say I have never been... )

So, from what I can see in the pictures, the test trains are the same as those from the Tram near the Cathedral. Is that right?

Yes, they will use exactly the same trains on the metro.

Hi!.
This map shown line 4 (red) as a arc line. The fully ring line has been canceled or is only a mistake?
Great metro, I love it!

The original planning for the line 4 is the one which is represented on the map, but logic suggests that the arc will be closed.

Anyway, construction projects for lines 2, 3 and 4 are still being drafted. We will know more about the new lines in few months.

It's a bit surprising that the green and blue lines are not linked anywhere... May be they can correct that...

Is this a light rail system like Porto's, but without street sections? Looks really nice!

Yes, it is a big mistake in the planning of the network.
A forumer proposed to build a tunnel between stations Nervión and Santa Justa (less than 1 km.), and then cross the lines.

This would be the original planning (line 1 in red and line 2 in blue):



And this is the proposal (sorry, I couldn't find a bigger image):

Exactly, like Porto but without street sections. And will have got platform screen doors at every stations, I think that it's the first metro that use this security system for LRT vehicles

Also good, but Santa Justa-Nervión is a zone with much more economic and comercial development.

Hello everyone!
We´re today very happy because we took a ride on metro yesterday (metro is on trial operation).
In addition to the videos posted by jostein, this is another video for the stretch Cocheras-Nervión (belonging to the tunnel and stations built in the 80's). Video was taken in the back of the train.

Enjoy!

Someone on this forum mentioned earlier that one of the stations had been renovated as it had been built for a prior metro system that was cancelled....

What were the original plans for Seville's metro? Was it proposed under General Franco or later? I remember reading that Franco started to build a lot of metro lines but a lot of them failed - is this correct?

Althought first plannings for build a metro in seville were made under Franco dictatorship,the first construction works took place between 1978 and 1983, already in democratic periode.

Between 1978 and 1983, 5 stations and 3.8 km tunnel were built. Now, all of this have been used for the new project.


You can find more info about the former project here:
