Haymarket Metro station will be an exit only station 8.15am to 9.15am, Monday to Friday. This is due to on-going repairs to one of its three escalators and the need to manage crowd control while we only have 2 escalators in service. Please use Monument, Jesmond or Central for access to trains in Newcastle city centre when this is in place.
