New Railway Link will Link Consett with Newcastle
Residents of Consett are today waking to the news that the Derwent Walk is to once again be reopened and turned into a railway link for residents to the Metro Centre and Newcastle City Centre.
As Consett grows , the railway link will allow residents to commute quickly into Newcastle and Gateshead.
The move is part of a major regeneration project for Consett, Co.Durham.
Officials have said, “Residents will benefit from superfast journeys from Consett to major transport hubs in: Gateshead, the Metro Centre, and Newcastle Central Station.”
Work on the new railway link is expected to start in early 2017.
