After several weeks preparing the area around El Corte Inglés and changing the road layout, work started on Wednesday to dig a new tunnel for the city's metro. Going north (eventually as far as the Hospital Civil), the new stretch will be built using the cut-and-cover technique, in which a trench is excavated and then roofed over.

The first phase of the work is expected to take at least two and a half years, although this could be altered in the case of archaeological excavations being required or other unexpected delays.

A second cutting machine is to be brought in to start work further up the line in September. The first phase of this extension of the current Línea 2 will run from Guadalmedina station outside El Corte Inglés and follow Calle Hilera to a station on Calle Santa Elena.
