Gateshead Metro Station

The Metro station at Gateshead Interchange opened in 1981 and is situated below ground. It is on both the Yellow and Green Lines. There is a regular service northbound towards Newcastle over the sixth Tyne Bridge crossing. Trains go onwards towards Newcastle Airport (Green line) and the Coast (Yellow line). Southbound services head towards Sunderland (Green line) and South Shields (Yellow Line).

The design of the station is very different from the underground stations in central Newcastle, due to the different rock structure south of the River Tyne. The running tunnels are square rather than circular in cross-section, and Gateshead station was excavated as a box.

Lighting in the station was improved by the installation of brighter and more energy efficient light bulbs in July 2014.
