Looking at Newcastle Airport's website, it warns about Metro trains running straight through the central station without stopping in the evenings to allow for major refurbishment works. Can anyone advise me whether this is still happening? The website says this is happening "until 30 June 2016" but I'm conscious it's not unusual for major refurbishment works to overrun! Thanks

This is still happening Sunday - Thursday trains are not stopping at Central Station. Trains do still stop at Monument which is the next station in the city centre and also Haymarket

Just to add this is from 8pm

Thank you. Silly question, but I assume Central Station is the main rail station? Is Monument within walking distance?

Yes Central is the mainline station. It is a walkable in my opinion 5-10 minutes and it is downhill too!
