Sunday sees NUFC take on Tottenham and Metro bosses have issued travel advice ahead of the game.
Nexus warn fans that no Metros will run between Shiremoor and South Gosforth and with using replacement bus services it could lengthen travel time.
They advise using the Metro via Wallsend if possible.
Nexus Press Release:
Newcastle Utd fans who travel on Metro between Shiremoor and South Gosforth are advised to allow extra time to get into town for the Spurs match on Sunday.
A major line closure will be in place which means that no Metros will be running between Shiremoor and South Gosforth and a replacement bus service will be in operation.
Nexus advise Newcastle Utd fans who need to transfer to replacement buses to allow extra time get into the city centre for the 1.30pm kick off.
Where possible the best option is to travel into Newcastle on the Metro via Wallsend.
Customer Services Director at Nexus, Huw Lewis said:
“We know many passengers normally travel from Whitley Bay and Monkseaton through the affected area – it will be quicker for you to travel via Whitley Bay and Wallsend when the line is closed and we will be putting on extra trains at peak time from all North Tyneside stations into St James to make this as easy as possible.
“Tickets for Zones A+B will be valid for this journey, providing you don’t get off in a Zone C station; Pop Pay As You Go cards will also calculate any journey from a Zone B station into Newcastle city centre as a two-zone fare.”
Nexus expects the total journey time of the replacement bus between South Gosforth and Shiremoor to be 32-45 minutes, depending on the time of day.
Fans can plan their journeys on the Nexus website, www.nexus.org.uk or by calling Nexus on 0191 20 20 747.
