Tyne and Wear Metro - trains are not running to timetable


The Tyne and Wear Metro is not running to schedule.

There are big problems between Regent Centre, Monkseaton and Pelaw. Trains are running every 15 minutes everywhere else.

This is due to faulty trains and bad weather.

“This morning’s peak trains were withdrawn due to faults caused by the severe cold weather. Ten trains were withdrawn but the core Metro service was maintained.

“Metro is running to all destinations but not to timetable. Passengers will notice trains feeling a lot busier due to the peak services not running.

“We’re sorry for the inconvenience caused.”
