Tyne and Wear Metro lines closed again

Have your say

METRO services will be suspended again this weekend.

The line between Pelaw and South Hylton will not be operational all day Sunday.

Also, the trains between Byker and Tynemouth will not be running Saturday or Sunday.

These suspensions are for modernisation work to the Metro network, and for work by Network Rail.

Two bus replacement services will be in operation throughout the disruptions.

The service 900 will call at, or close to, all stations between Byker and Tynemouth, and bus service 901 will be in operation between Heworth and South Hylton.

Customers are advised to buy their Metro ticket on the bus replacement service.

Metro bosses have apologised for the inconvenience.
