Manors Metro Station


 

Manors Metro station is to the east of Newcastle city centre on the Yellow line of the Tyne and Wear Metro, and opened in 1982. Due to its location on the edge of the city centre the station is relatively lightly used with a recorded patronage of 227,000 passengers in the period 2008-9. An abstract mural entitled Magic City by Basil Beattie can be seen in the station. It was commissioned in 1987.

Heading east from Manors, the route surfaces alongside the East Coast Main Line and then crosses the dramatic 800m long Byker Viaduct constructed by Ove Arup for the Metro. The former North Eastern Railway route between Manors railway station and Jesmond is connected via a link tunnel just west of Manors. It is used only by trains running out of public service, allowing them to terminate at Manors and then return to the Gosforth depot (and vice versa) without having to travel around the coast. The line can be clearly seen on satellite imagery running alongside the A167(M) Central Motorway.
