The biggest Tyne and Wear Metro line closure for more than 30 years starts 3rd August. The stretch running up to the airport will be closed for a month as part of a multi-million pound modernisation project.
A stretch of the Tyne and Wear Metro route, which carried 30,000 passengers a day, is to close for nearly a month for refurbishment work - the longest closure in its history.
Stations between Haymarket, Newcastle Airport and Four Lane Ends will be closed for 27 days from Sunday 4th August.
Fifty buses will be laid on instead, but it does mean journeys will take longer and the timetable will change, even for stations not affected by the refurbishment.
The Major Line Closure will see six kilometres of track replaced between Jesmond and South Gosforth, a section of line that has 30,000 passenger journeys each day, 450 train movements and a service every three minutes.
– Director General of Nexus, Bernard Garner
"Closing a Metro line for 27 days is a difficult decision but it is vital so that we can replace a key section of track in as short a time as possible. It will mean we can deliver a high quality Metro service for the next 50 years. I am sorry for any inconvenience caused by the work."**
