To allow for modernisation work, there are no Metro trains operating between Benton and North Shields in either direction on Saturday 8th October 2016 and Sunday 9th October 2016. Arriva North East has been awarded with the contract to operate replacement bus service, number 900, which calls at or near to all stations between Four Lane Ends and North Shields. To allow double-deck vehicles to be released for use on this service, this vehicle has transferred from Redcar Depot to Jesmond. It will also be used after that to allow the Scania CN94UB/Scania Omnicity vehicles which are allocated to service 685 at Jesmond to be repainted, as part of a scheme to re-launch the service with a new brand identity in partnership with Stagecoach: "Cross Pennine Connection".

As part of Nexus' £350m Metro 'all change' modernisation programme, there are no trains running between Tynemouth and Shiremoor in either direction from 19th March until 2nd April, to allow for track replacement work. 8.7 kilometres of 50-year-old-tracks and track beds between Tynemouth and Shiremoor are being replaced so that the new track will last 50 years more.
