Presumably use Stephenson Street with Howard St and Northumberland Square being permanently closed

There's links to the plan for North Shields 

Google: North Shields Transport hub or North Shields regeneration plan
But there isn't any direct link to the Transport hub itself

Looking through both plans. There is two different versions of the bus station

Being in North Shields over the past few weeks. Around where the bus station is to go is what looks like spray paint on the ground and talking to the owner of a cafe near the metro station the council bought all the buildings where it is going. They are going to do Howard Street first then close Iceland down then start work on the bus station

Unless plans have changed for a third time, I don't believe Iceland is planned to close. It's only the co-op which is going and they've already shut down for it.

That's the latest plan I believe.

It's confusing due to 3 different plans of the bus station. Yet what's werid. All shops apart from Iceland have been bought and closed down by the council for the bus station to start. Yet Iceland remains in the same place. It looks so out of place

Not unless the plan is to build round Iceland and keep Iceland slap bang in the middle and the bus station built behind it.

From photo's that's been took of North Shields showing the general area of where rhe bus station will be

Last photo is mine and the rest are other people's

Out of the 5 photos of buses shown next to the big building next to the metro station is where the bus station is meant to be

If I'm right the bus station is where the yellow is and always has been. What's changed is now instead of them knocking down the light blue area they're now knocking down the green area instead as it's cheaper since the Metro doesn't run underneath. Don't think it's ever been planned to knock down Costa / Iceland / the old Burger King or McDonalds unit. The back half of the Co-op has been abandoned for years, it used to be one big shop at one point but then they only kept the front half.

Yea looking at the yellow is to be the bus station. Yet there 3 different versions of the transport hub. Which all 3 are to fit in that small space (in yellow) I think the blue part is the part there gonna demolish but the cafe owner says that they bought the building (in Green)

Nah it's definitely the Green that's going now, it's changed quite recently, the Blue was the original plan though.

https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/nor...r-19702147 - There's an article here explaining why, it's easier than me explaining but it's due to the Metro tracks.

Unless Nile Street is made two way again though, it's got a massive flaw as the 1 and 306 towards Newcastle won't serve it since they have to take a massive detour around Shields to get out.

So the plan is to build the bus station next to the metro station. God I wonder how this is gonna be for the buses in North Shields itself since most of the roads round Bedford Street and Rudyard Street will have to be closed while the bus station is built

RE: North Shields Regeneration Plan
From Wednesday 13 October

There will be some changes to routes, timetables and stopping arrangements for routes which serve North Shields Town Centre due to the closure of Howard Street and Northumberland Square.  Passengers who normally use the stop on Howard Street (41n13 - adjacent to the Library) should instead a new stop on Stephenson Street near the junction with Suez Street.  Passengers who normally use the stops at Northumberland Square (41n04 & 41n16) should instead use stop 41n03 on Albion Road.
