Photo's description:
The existing system of Tyne and Wear Metro should develop. Now 350 000 inhabitants of the Tyne and Wear, and 290 thousand inhabitants of Northumberland and Durham, who work, rest, study, shop, use the airport, port and railway stations do not have easy access to Metro. I propose a phased development of the network of the Tyne and Wear Metro in the form of a complex of new lines, which are combined with the current ones (Figures 1 and 2). 1. The circuit line (Seaburn - Chichester - Port - Meadow Well - West Monkseaton - South Cramlington - Airport - Throckle - Ryton - Stanley - Chester-le-Street - Newbottle - New Silkworth - Park lane. Circuit line length 40.23 km/24, 99 miles . 2. Radial lines and connecting sections. End stations Blyth, Ponteland, Heddon-on-the-Wall, Peterlee, Seaham. The total length of radial lines and connecting sections 98.58 km/61, 26 miles. Implementation should be divided into 8 stages. Indicated implementation period is 15 years (10 km / 6.2 miles per year). Considering environmental issues, minimizing land use, the convenience of the construction and operation works, the possibility of optimal track routes usage, I consider it necessary to make all new lines as underground. Ease of passenger communications will increase the investment attractiveness of individual settlements and the region as a whole. In combination with an 250% increase in passenger traffic in metro network, which will offset the costs of construction and operation.
