Following a groundbreking ceremony attended by the Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, Minister of Transport & Suatainable Mobility Oscar Puente and Isabel, Minster of Housing & Urban Development, construction work has begun on line 3 of the Sevilla metro. 
Once complete, the 7.6km line will connect the northern suburbs to metro Line 1 as well as central Tram routes within the city. 
The new line will host 12 stations with one being above-ground whilst the others are underground. 
Serving the city's hospital and key health centre, the line promises to be a key service for the city's 120 000 inhabitants as well as removing an estimated 25 000 car journeys a day. The line is expected to carry 13.3 million passengers per year and offer an end to end journey time of 18 minutes. 
The route is expected to take eight years to complete at a budgeted cost of EUR1.3bn with funding being provided by the national government, the Junta de Andalucia and the European Union. 
The President of the Junta de Andalucia, Juanma Moreno, confirmed that tenders had been called for preparatory works on the 12.9 km metro Line 2.
