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.
