Bombardier tram on Valencia line 10. (FGV)
Valencia, a Mediterranean city in Spain, has announced plans to extend its tramway, extending one line and creating two new ones.  
On 12 February plans were announced for a EUR 22M extension of FGV tram line 10 north from Nazaret to the coast and an interchange with lines 6 and 8 at Grau-La Marina.  
There will also be two new lines: line 11 will start from an interchange with line 10 at Ciutat Arts i Ciencies-Justicia and run along Avenida del Puerta to Grau-La Marina; line 12 will follow a southern orbital route from a point on line 10 between Amado Granell Montolivet and Ciutat Arts to Safrana (interchange with lines 1, 2 and 7) and Nou d’Octubre (interchange with lines 3, 5 and 9). It is hoped to complete all this by 2030. 
FGV (Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat Valenciana) has operated meter-gauge metro and tram lines since 1 January 1987 and has invested in the system since then, with 10 lines covering 161.7km (29.8km underground).  
Tram lines are 4, 6, 8 and 10 with Siemens and Bombardier stock. A EUR 84.3M contract has been signed with Stadler for the delivery of 16 Tramlink from 2025 and there is an option for 12 more.
