Nexus launches rail corridor studies

20 March 2020

Nexus, the Tyne and Wear PTE, is commissioning consultants to explore the feasibility of introducing new rail-based passenger services in South Tyneside and Wearside. The work will examine: direct passenger services to the International Advanced Manufacturing Park from South Shields and Sunderland; a rail link to Doxford in Sunderland; and rail services from Sunderland to Washington. The North East Joint Transport Committee instructed Nexus in January to undertake feasibility studies into ten potential Metro and local rail extensions identified in the 2016 Metro and local rail strategy. Nexus has grouped the extensions into four geographically-bound packages, with work to be undertaken over the next 18 to 24 months. The studies will develop the plans up to the equivalent of Network Rail GRIP2 level.
