    I am not sure if this is possible in that location, but if not, why only go so far, why not ad a few more stops and allow high density residential along either side of the line?

    The plans we've seen for this route send the tram / future metro through low-speed, low-width reseidential streets.

    That would be a stupid mistake because it dramatically lowers transit times and reduces capacity through interaction with traffic. Look at the red line, it's already common to see two trams waiting for consecutive sets of lights. Also, bigger distance between junctions means more opportunity to expand to metro length vehicles later.
