People living in the west end of Newcastle
United Kingdom

A campaign has been launched to bring the Metro or a tram system to the West End of Newcastle by reinstating parts of the Tyne Valley Line closed as a result of the Beeching Cuts in 1958.

Before 1958, communities such as Newburn, Lemington and Scotswood were connected to the city centre and Hexham via a local train service.

Residents of the Outer West are unhappy that they have no access to the Metro, despite contributing through Nexus to the running of the Metro system.

It's time for the Metro to go West.

We, the undersigned, support the campaign to bring the Metro to the Outer West.

The Get the Outer West Back on Track - We Want the Metro petition to People living in the west end of Newcastle was written by JS and is in the category Politics at GoPetition.
