Gosforth and Jesmond Metro stations to be revamped

Two Tyne and Wear Metro stations are to be refurbished as part of a £385m modernisation programme.

The work at South Gosforth and West Jesmond, will see the platforms, buildings and approaches to the stations improved.

New ticket machines will also be installed during the modernisation work.

Nexus, which owns the Metro, said the work would start on Monday and was expected to last about 15 weeks.

Both stations will remain open, but there will be limited platform closures on some evenings, Nexus said.
