Dunston Railway Station To Be Extended

Dunston Railway Station
Our local councillors have pushed for many years to get more trains stopping at Dunston railway station but the problem has been the platform length. Now, Network Rail plans to extend the platform to allow longer trains, with more seats, to stop here. Work will start 23 February and finish 3 March. There’ll be a drop-in info session with Network Rail about the plans on 12 February from 5 till 7.30pm at Dunston Activity Centre for residents who want to know more. – Brenda Clelland.
