Fellgate Metro Station


Fellgate Metro station serves the Fellgate area of Jarrow, in South Tyneside, England. It is on the Green line of the Tyne and Wear Metro, and opened in 2002 as part of the extension of the system to Sunderland. Before the Metro extension to Sunderland had been mooted, there were plans for a railway station here.

Mainline Heavy rail services provided by Northern from Sunderland through Newcastle Central pass through the station hourly but do not stop, while there are also freight trains and empty Grand Central workings between Heaton depot and Sunderland.

There is one free car parking area for this station. There is limited spaces so during the working day it can be busy but at weekends it is quiet.
