 System

In Málaga, Andalucia, a similar system to the one under construction in Seville is planned. This will be a light rail system, using low-floor trains, with two lines radiating from the city centre towards the west, running mostly underground. Both lines share a common stretch in the city centre. Construction started in autumn 2005.

Line 2 was meant to be in service on 11-11-2011, but although operational between La Isla and Palacio de los Deportes, its inauguration was eventually postponed to coincide with that of line 1 and the shared city centre section in spring 2013, then delayed to the end of 2013.

At El Perchel the future metro provides interchange with the existing Cercanías (suburban) line to the Airport and Fuengirola, and to the mainline services (AVE high speed link to Córdoba and Madrid).

In 2006, the first tramway in Andalusia opened 30 km further east, in Vélez-Málaga.

Line 3 was planned to serve the eastern parts of the city, linked to the other two lines at the formerly planned terminus Malagueta.

Line 4 will be a surface tram line running from Guadalmedina station north to the Hospital Civil de Málaga.
