The Tyne & Wear Metro line is fully open again, a day later than planned. The service had been closed for an upgrade through parts of Newcastle and North Tyneside for almost a month.
Trains were due to return to normal yesterday, but signal faults meant part of the service had to be suspended.
A spokesman has confirmed that the Tyne and Wear Metro line between Haymarket, Regent Centre and Four Lane Ends did not reopen as planned this morning because of signal faults detected by tests overnight.
The rest of the line is running normally, including between Regent Centre and Newcastle Airport. The spokesman said there was no problem with the upgraded track. The issues should be resolved soon.
A stretch of the Tyne and Wear Metro, which was due to reopen this morning after a month-long closure, has closed due to "unforeseen circumstances".
There are no trains running between Haymarket, Regent Centre and Four Lane Ends.
The track and drainage has been upgraded over the summer and trains were due to begin from 0530 this morning. A bus replacement service is now running instead.
