Central Station Metro Station :: Shared Description

Wikipedia: LinkExternal link
Central is an underground Tyne and Wear Metro station, serving Newcastle Central Station in Newcastle upon Tyne. It joined the network on 15 November 1981, following the opening of the third phase of the network, between Haymarket and Heworth.

The station is located below Newcastle Central Station, from which the Metro station gets its name. It is the third-busiest on the network after Monument and Haymarket. The station has entrances from inside the National Rail station, and entrances from the street.

Metro serves as a replacement for some routes that had formerly been operated from the mainline station towards Benton & Tynemouth via the North Tyneside Loop. In 1984, Metro reached South Shields, replacing British Rail services. In 2002, Metro was extended to Sunderland and South Hylton, where it shares tracks between Pelaw and Sunderland with Northern services on the Durham Coast Line.
