If the 333 isn't running you can use your ferry ticket on the 19.

Shields Ferry services have been suspended due to the discovery of damage to the North Shields landing

Nexus, the public body which owns and operates the cross-Tyne passenger service, discovered structural damage this afternoon and has suspended services to allow a full examination to take place.

A frequent Ferry replacement bus service will be in operation for passengers this evening and throughout Tuesday, 22 November, calling near both landings.

Buses depart from South Shields Ferry Landing on River Drive (B1344) - just outside the BT building.

Buses depart from North Shields Ferry Landing at the bus turning circle, just outside the landing area. Passengers who have a bike will not be able to use the replacement buses with their bikes. Bikes can be used on the Tyne Tunnel shuttle bus, 6am-8pm, which runs between Jarrow and Howdon.

Nexus cannot operate river crossings when the North landing is out of service as it means that the ferries have nowhere to dock.

Head of Communications at Nexus, Huw Lewis, said: “An inspection of the north landing has shown up some structural damage.

“It is vital that we investigate this in more detail so we need to close the North Shields landing to passengers. Safety is our top priority at all times.

“This means that we are currently unable to operate crossings. We will keep passengers fully informed when we are able to re-open the landing. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.”

Ferry service suspended

Ferry services are suspended due to the tidal surge. Replacement buses running half hourly from each landing from 5pm.

I wonder if this can possibly be a new excuse for the Metro? Big Grin Big Grin
