When I was staying in Seville, near the Metropol Parasol, I really missed that metro line 2. I could have used it so many times.

The buses are already rather slow in that area, because the streets are narrow and filled with cars. A tram is no solution here. A metro needs to be built.

Outside of old historic city center, avenues in Sevilla are wide and convenient for street level efficient public transport like "stadtbahn".
The historic town is, or must be, pedestrian and cycling zone.

I'am not sure that subway is really necessary in this town

You still need to traverse or get out of the center, so at the very least Seville needs trams that pass underneath the center through tunnels.

The only existing "metro" line (L1) was planned mostly underground because it partially reused the abandoned tunnels of the metro project built in the 80s. Out of the city, L1 was planned to include some tram-like sections, but it was finally decided to put them underground before the start of the works.

However, the other three lines (L2, L3, L4) were initially planned as pre-metro or stadtbahn lines, with tunnels underneath the city center and tram-like sections elsewhere. Nevertheless, after the opening of the L1, there was some political pressure from the mayor of Seville to upgrade the other three planned lines to metro-like standards, similar to L1 (also with light rail vehicles like those in L1 as rolling stock). Finally the Andalusian regional government agreed on the change and L2 and L3 were subsequently planned as 100% underground lines, while L4 just maintained a small tram-like section in the western part of the city (former Expo 1992 grounds).

In my opinion, the central section of L2 and the whole L3 should be built underground. The eastern part of L2 could be built as a regular tram line without causing any disruption to traffic if some crossings are put underground, for the traffic or for trams.. The same can be said of most parts of L4.

In any event, the financial situation of Andalusia and Spain as a whole hasn't been really good since the opening of L1, so construction of the three other lines hasn't started, although they haven't been ruled out. Let's bear in mind that the Andalusian regional government is also in charge of the construction of metro-tram networks in Málaga and Granada, as well as a tram-train line in Cádiz and a tram line linking Alcalá de Guadaira to Seville's L1. Besides, there are two further tram lines in Andalusia which are completed but have never entered into service (Jaén) or have closed down (Vélez-Málaga).

That is a pitty.

Sevilla should build real metro lines in the future.

I was there on the Tram and the metro.

The Metro was still full. It was very nice clean cold.

Sevilla tram extension progresses
09 Dec 2016



SPAIN: Sevilla municipality is moving ahead with a long-planned extension of the city’s tram line by calling tenders for the design work, worth €484 000.

The 1·8 km extension would take the 1 435 mm gauge Metrocentro line east from its current terminus of San Bernardo, before turning north to reach Santa Justa railway station. There would be three intermediate stops. Work is expected to take 20 months, and the city is seeking EU co-funding or an EIB loan

Both headlines are somehow misleading:

While it's true that works on the tram line between Alcalá de Guadaíra and Pablo de Olavide station on L1 are progressing, it's not a metro extension, just a tram line. However, given that the current L1 is operated with light rail units, there could be through operation between both lines. But it's not a metro extension.

On the other hand, works on the tram line between San Bernardo and Santa Justa stations haven't started yet, so it's perhaps a little exaggerated to talk about "progress of the extension".
