REVAMP PLANS MUST INCLUDE METRO STATION

November 30, 2008 3:16 AM

The Liberal Democrats are continuing to press council planners to ensure that upgrades to Chillingham Road Metro station are included in the Siemens site regeneration plans, with a view to securing private sector developer contributions to the cost.

Councillor Greg Stone, Parliamentary spokesman for Newcastle East, says: "We have asked the council to ensure that the plans include a more attractive 'public realm' with better and safer pedestrian links to residential areas and new developments."

Councillor Stone is a member of the Tyne & Wear Passenger Transport Authority and is continuing to lobby NEXUS to secure improvements.
