Travel warning ahead of last Metro changes this weekend

Travellers hoping to travel in and out of Newcastle this week are being asked to plan any late trips in advance.

Geordies travelling to and from the Newcastle city centre this weekend have been warned to plan ahead as times for the last metro change.

A revised Metro timetable will be in place on both Saturday, January 21 and Sunday, January 22 across the network.

No trains at all will be running between Airport-South Gosforth and South Gosforth-Four Lane Ends this weekend, but more to note is the change in the last Metros.

For any residents coming in and out of Newcastle this weekend to make the most of Restaurant Week, watch Newcastle in Premier League action at Crystal Palace in bars, shopping or whatever it may be, travellers are warned to check times and plan their journey home.

In a message shared on social media, Tyne and Wear Metro said: "Please be aware trains will finish and terminate earlier than normal due to this weekends improvement works."
