Nexus Site Visit.jpg

An opportunity for our members to visit the Tyne & Wear Metro Maintenance Depot in Gosforth.

This behind the scenes tour will give you an insight into the everyday maintenance of the Metro fleet – the lifting shop, vehicle wash and the top shed which houses the on track maintenance vehicles, replacing track and moving ballast.

You will also hear about Nexus’ ambitions for new fleet and possible extension opportunities for the future across the Tyne & Wear area.

All PPE will be provided on the day, but please wear sensible closed toe shoes!

Due to the nature of the visit, we are limited to a maximum number of 20 delegates.  It is expected that not all requests will be accommodated and a waiting list will be maintained.

This tour is for Women in Transport members who are invited to bring along a guest.
