by Stuart Vose

Details of upcoming works on the Tyne and Wear Metro.

Supporters are asked to take note of partial line closures on Tyne and Wear Metro on the day of the FA Cup with Budweiser fifth round tie against Southampton (Saturday 15th February).

The line will be closed all day between Heworth and South Hylton and Heworth and Jarrow to allow for modernisation work.

Replacement buses will be laid on by Nexus and fans are advised to leave extra time for their journey.

The park and ride facilities on Wessington Way will be open as usual for supporters opting to travel by car.

Engineering works are also planned between Heworth and South Hylton on the day of the Capital One Cup final (Sunday 2nd March).

These works will not begin until 9am, with services running before this time.

Fans returning to Newcastle Central Station after the game will be able to board Metro services to Heworth, where they can continue their onward journey via replacement buses.
