A major programme of track replacement work on the Tyne and Wear Metro in Gateshead is underway, which will mean some disruption to services over the next three weekends.
The work will see 1.6 kilometres of line replaced between Gateshead Stadium and Felling as part of the £350m Metro: all change modernisation programme.
Metro services south of the Tyne will be affected over three weekends and frequent replacement buses will be provided, as follows:
- April 13-14: No trains Monument to Hebburn/Brockley Whins
- April 19-22 (Easter weekend): No trains Gateshead Stadium to Hebburn/Brockley Whins
- May 4-6 (Bank Holiday weekend): No trains Monument to Hebburn/Brockley Whins
Replacement bus services, number 900 and 901, will be calling at or close to all Metro stations in the affected areas when the lines are closed.
Customers are advised to allow extra time if travelling through the affected areas.
