South Shields Metro Station To Close Tomorrow

For the first time in its history, Nexus are permanently closing one of its stations, South Shields.

South Shields Metro station, opened in 1984 and is due to close tomorrow, Monday 8th July, to make way for the town’s new £21m bus and Metro interchange.

The station has been used by over 50 million passengers in it's 39 year history including those heading to the famous Great North Run and has been the scene of many memories for locals & visitors alike.

But passengers needn't think they won't be able to catch the Tyne & Wear Metro to South Shields as a brand new Bus & Metro Interchange will open just 100 metres away on Sunday 4th August.

The new interchange promises to be a fresh modern facility that includes escalators and lifts to platform level offering a fully accessable station as well as a café, bike storage and seated waiting areas.

Metro services will terminate at Chichester station for four weeks from 8th July to allow completion of the Interchange, with frequent buses linking to the town centre until it opens on Sunday 4th August.
