Make Sunderland Civic Centre site a new rail station

editorial image

The site of the Sunderland Civic Centre should be used to extend Sunderland railway station.

This should also be a joint project between Sunderland City Council and Durham County Council to open up the old Sunderland to Consett line.

Some stops en route would be Washington and Beamish. The route could be from Park Lane Metro station to Consett.
