TRANSPORT bosses have unveiled grand plans to extend the Metro across Wearside and East Durham.
Nexus has drawn up a long-term vision to expand the system to include Doxford International, Washington and Seaham, as well as creating a super-speed link between East Boldon and South Shields.
In a bid to secure the move, transport chiefs at Tyne and Wear Integrated Transport Authority have commissioned an independent review to address the best way to connect areas not currently served by the Metro.
The plans proposes a new Metro line linking Washington to Pelaw and South Hylton, an extension from the University to Doxford International and an extension to Seaham.
The proposed nine new lines across the whole service will include a mixture of trains, trams and special bus routes.
But how often do you use the existing Metro system?
