Between the 6 and 14 January a major track renewal project will take place near Newcastle station. This involves the closure of a bridge and a reduction in the number of trains that can enter Newcastle station from the South.

Northern services will be affected by this work. Trains between Newcastle and the Metrocentre will be replaced by buses.

Full timetables will be available to download here 2 weeks prior to the start of the work. Individual train times are already available at nationalrail.co.uk
