Has needed to happen for years, good transport links is the best way to bring it into the 21st century. It also baffles me how we've never had a metro line for the metro centre :lol:

Would be amazing if those proposals came off; however, the vast majority of those stations won't come to light. A station at Silksworth would be handy, as would the link between North and South Tyneside.

Rather than look at that map and think 'Ooh, look at all of those places we could get to, easier'....we need to think 'urgh, look at all those places that could get to us, easily!" :undecided:

Some proper inbred places at the end of the lines.

Yeh, PONTELAND...I'm talking to you! :rant:

Nah...just kidding. It all looks great :shifty:

The stop "Pity Me" looks particularly depressing (like).

that expansion map is ridiculous, it’d cost hundreds of billions.

They’ll build half a dozen new stations tops in the next 20 years.

They can't even maintain and look after the ones they've got already, this is a terrible idea.

It's like a single mam of 4 living off benefits getting pregnant with twins and happy about it due to get some more money out of us all.

Don't extensively use the metro these days, but whenever I've needed to, the stations have been fine...occasionally needing a paint job (out towards the coast) but nothing major.

Biggest complaint would be the lack of a facility to pay without coins. Pretty ridiculous that they haven't got card facilities and then have inspectors galore.

Went the 'long way round' from Monument to Tynemouth on Monday and the stations all looked decent.

hundreds of billions is a correct term, gazillion is fictitious.

the tram build cost in Edinburgh is getting close to one billion £’s for 23 stops.

I've not even seen the plans, but I know that there is no way it'll be hundreds of billions. :lol:

Also, don't get so touchy over it, hundreds of billions ffs. :lol:

You're still sticking with the "hundreds of billions" prediction? :lol: Unbelievable.

I've had a quick look, and I'll say a billion, because I have absolutely no idea, yet I can still give you a cast-iron, Gupter Guarantee that I will be an awful lot more accurate than you. :lol:

Surely the expansion to the darkside didn't cost hundreds of billions? And that's still pretty recently built.

I'd say at a guess that the map won't get done soon, there's just too many to build for one expansion, but even if it's done one by one is progress and say, they built a few more in the next 5 years for what need's one, ie. Metro Centre, West End and maybe the Shields connection etc etc.

you must have trouble reading as well as doing sums — as I’ve already pointed out the tram build cost in Edinburgh is getting close a billion for only 23 stops. As on that same post on page 2 it stated “Last year the service was awarded £300m by the Government for upgrade work” — that’s nigh on a third of a billion for upgrade work only.

that plan has loads of new stations and several bridges. A billion wouldn’t even scratch the surface.

You just stick to p*ss taking smiley faces etc eh?

You can't see the difference between £300m or £1bn and "hundreds of billions"? f***ing hell man. :lol:

Do you know what the entire planned expenditure by the Government in the latest budget was? About £700bn, you're expecting what, half that on the f***ing metro? You are phenomenal. :lol:

clearly that was my point — the whole plan is ridiculous, try reading it again, if you can.

A billion and a third of a billion for next to nothing would multiply into hundreds of billions for that sort of expansion — that’s why the plan is ridiculous.

penny dropping yet?

You need to get a grip, not on this planet would that planned expansion cost "hundreds of billions", for crying out loud.

I've never heard such an absolutely preposterous estimation, I originally gave you benefit of the doubt and assumed it was grossly exaggerated, but no, you are carrying on with this ridiculous notion.

You have cited the Edinburgh build as an example, it's nearing on £1bn for 23 stops you say, let's apply the comparison literally (silly I know), I'll give you the benefit of the doubt (again), and assume you only meant £200bn, that would mean 4600 stops, I've only had a quick look at the plan, admittedly, but I don't see 4600 stops, do you?

It genuinely worries me that you believe it would cost "hundreds of billions" to implement this, it really does, I find it shocking and a little bit disturbing.

When you walk into a shop, I bet the people working there have seen you coming from a mile off.
