Nexus announces they will fix smelly Metro station on Monday
Now we know why it stank
On Friday afternoon Nexus told The Tab they suspected it was an issue with the drains but weren’t able to confirm for certain if this was the case. A Nexus spokesman said “We are aware of this problem and we are investigating it.
“At this stage it looks like an issue with one of the drains in the central area Metro tunnels which run beneath the streets of Newcastle. We will get this problem rectified as quickly as possible.”
Nexus have since confirmed that work will be taking place on Monday night to resolve the issue. You can take the pegs off your noses.
A Nexus spokesman said: “The problem has been identified as a blocked drain and will be fixed by Monday.”
The work will be done during track access hours so shouldn’t cause any delays.
