Now that Line 1 has been operational for a few months, perhaps someone can advise what is planned next for expanding the metro?

and now...

Obras Públicas inicia en la Ronda Histórica los trabajos de la línea 3 del Metro de Sevilla

Obras Públicas comenzó ayer los trabajos previos a la construcción de la línea 3 del Metro de Sevilla, que unirá Pino Montano con Bermejales. La consejería ha comenzado a realizar sondeos y catas en la Ronda Histórica para determinar el estado del terreno y elaborar el proyecto del trazado.

En una primera etapa de estos trabajos previos, se realizarán hasta 55 actuaciones, según informó ayer la consejería que dirige Rosa Aguilar. Se trata de realizar tanto catas –prospecciones en el terreno de en torno a 1,5 metros de profundidad– como sondeos en el terreno –éstos de unos 20 a 25 metros– para “analizar las características del subsuelo y detectar la existencia de servicios urbanos como redes de abastecimiento y saneamiento de aguas, tuberías de gas natural y cableado eléctrico”, informó Obras Públicas, quien adelantó que estas actuaciones conllevarán cortes al tráfico de poca consideración.

Estos trabajos ofrecerán a la Junta toda la información necesaria sobre el terreno que ocupará la futura línea 3 “para después iniciar el proyecto del trazado de la misma con todas las garantías de seguridad”, informaron fuentes de la consejería.

La Junta recordó también que, junto a estas actuaciones iniciales para la línea 3 del Metro, “se ha constituido un grupo técnico de trabajo para avanzar al mismo tiempo en los proyectos de las líneas 2 y 4, actualmente en fase de redacción”.

Cortes al tráfico. Precisamente, en esta primera etapa de actuaciones, Obras Públicas realizará catas y sondeos geotécnicos en el tramo de la línea 3 comprendido entre Pino Montano y el Prado de San Sebastián –Avenida de la Borbolla con Avenida Carlos V–.

La consejería aseguró que las catas y los sondeos obligarán a realizar cortes de tráfico, aunque con poca incidencia. “Prácticamente, sólo afectarán al carril bus –según fuentes del departamento de Rosa Aguilar– y en cualquier caso estarán siempre coordinados con la Delegación de Movilidad del Ayuntamiento de Sevilla”.

Sin embargo, Obras Públicas tranquilizó respecto a la posiblidad de que pudieran suceder otro tipo de incidencias, como cortes de luz. “En el caso de las líneas eléctricas –apuntó la consejería– no se realizarán catas ni sondeos sino que se emplearán técnicas de radar para ubicar su ubicación con precisión”.

La línea 3 del Metro recorrerá el eje norte-sur de Sevilla y tendrá una longitud aproximada de 11,6 kilómetros. La Junta y el Ayuntamiento de Sevilla la consideran una de las líneas prioritarias, una vez puesta en marcha la línea 1 el pasado 2 de abril, por su potencial para atender barrios densamente poblados y equipamientos públicos de interés, así como por las posibilidades de conexión que ofrecerá a la ciudad al articularse con la línea ya en funcionamiento.

Está previsto que la línea 3 tenga 17 paradas y conectará con la 1 en el Prado. Llevará a 20 millones de viajeros el primer año.

The works in the line 3 have already begun in the Historic Avenue

The central station of Puerta de Jerez has been inaugurated last week. It is the station with more frequency of travelers of the line 1. It´s located near the Cathedral, the Great Avenue and the commercial and financial zone of the downtown of the city. It´s also an interchanger of transport because in front of the subway station It´s the streetcar and the metropolitan buses stations.

Due to technical problems in the zone

Is this correct that construction on Line 3 is already underway?

Is there a reason that Seville chose to go with a light rail-based metro rather than a heavy rail metro?

In summer 2009 there were just preliminary archeological works, but the construction of Line 3 has not begun yet. At least we know that it will be mostly underground, 100% in the city center, with short above surface sections in the suburbs. However, due to the current economic situation in Spain, I'm not really optimistic about its construction in the near future.

I'm sure that some other users from Sevilla wil be able to answer your query more precisely.

Thank you, I appreciate your answer.

Though Spains current economic situation will mean projects are deferred or some perhaps cancelled the country has at least had to foresight to heavily invest in mass transit in recent years which is a wise investment a future recovery.

There's a slight difference. Whereas Seville metro is totally independent from other traffic (and even totally underground within the city boundaries), Porto metro is not fully segregated from other traffic; only the underground sections can be seen as a metro, the rest of the network has tram standards.

I don't know if you have seen Sevilla's tram, they both exist. Because Porto's tram and Sevilla's metro have nothing in common besides the use of light rolling stock.

Porto:


railway-technology.com

And Seville's metro:


elcorreoweb.es

You could call them a rocket if you want, but they're such a different infrastructure.

Now i guess it depends the country where you live.

I never saw a metro passing in the middle of street

Seville's metro doesnt have at grade crossings, it's fully independend, just using tram-like trains...

...but there are other metro systems that sometimes have regular street crossings:


Chicago - train crossing Francisco Avenue
