Tyne & Wear Metro car parks reserved for NHS staff only

21 March 2020

Two of the biggest car parks on the Tyne and Wear Metro are to be reserved for NHS staff.

All staff from the NHS Newcastle Hospitals Trust will be allowed to park at Four Lane Ends and Regent Centre car parks for free from Saturday 21 March.

The move by Nexus, which own the car parks, will free up more than 650 parking spaces within easy reach of the trust’s main sites at the Royal Victoria Infirmary and Freeman Hospital by Metro and bus.

Huw Lewis, director of customer services at Nexus said: “We’re doing all we can to support essential workers getting around the region at this difficult time. The NHS is under immense pressure, and reserving these car parks for hospital trust staff only makes their day a little bit easier.”

For other passengers, alternative parking is available at Northumberland Park, Kingston Park and Callerton Parkway Metro stations
