The Tyne and Wear Metro.

There are major line closures on the Metro as track replacement work takes place – starting today.

It’ll mean the lines between Benton and Monkseaton will be closed until Saturday, August 6.

Stations including Tynemouth, Cullercoats and Whitley Bay will stay open this time, after work was completed there earlier in the year.

There will be a frequent replacement bus service in operation during the closure for all passengers who would otherwise use the Metro between Benton and Monkseaton.
