Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear Tyne and Wear Passenger Transport Executive,

I wish to request the depths of the following points at stations on the Metro network, each from the respective above street level.

1) Depth of metro concourse (where the gate line is) at Central Station
2) Depth of platform level at Central Station
3) Depth of metro concourse (where the gate line is) at Monument Station
4) Depth of northbound/southbound platforms (1 and 2) platform level at Monument Station
5) Depth of eastbound/westbound platforms (3 and 4) platform level at Monument Station

The reason for this request is that I wish to compare these depths to that of other light rail systems I am researching, such as the London Underground (where this information is already public information). I do not believe this information to be confidential or sensitive in nature, and I believe it to be reasonable that you would hold this information about the stations.

I appreciate your assistance in this request and wish to offer my thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Declan Palmer
