Many Newcastle United fans who were headed to the Tottenham game on Saturday encountered Metro troubles.

Nexus issued an announcement (see below) to clarify the situation.

With substantial work on the Metro system, Newcastle United fans are encouraged to leave plenty of time to arrive to the game.

‘Newcastle United fans are reminded that the Metro line between Benton and North Shields is closed this weekend.

That will have an impact on travel to the Spurs game tomorrow, Saturday, April 13, which kicks off at 12.30pm at St James’ Park.

Fans travelling from North Tyneside to Newcastle’s core should plan ahead and allow extra time for their journey.
A frequent replacement bus service, 900, runs between Four Lane Ends and North Shields, allowing commuters to take Metro trains from those two stops into town.

Metro Infrastructure Director Stuart Clarke apologized in advance for any trouble this may give consumers.Customers will be supplied with frequent replacement bus services throughout this maintenance, and they should allow some extra time to complete their journey in the area where the line is closed.

“If you’re heading into Newcastle, where possible get the Metro from North Shields and head into town via Wallsend, or alight from the bus at Four Lane Ends and catch a Metro from there.”
