Tyne and Wear Metro Announcements.

Joe Charlton made this Freedom of Information request to Tyne and Wear Passenger Transport Executive

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Tyne and Wear Passenger Transport Executive,

I would like to request the following information.

Please could I have a copy of all of the current (male) and older (female) voice announcements e.g. 'Next station is Howdon, Please take extra care when using the Level Crossing' or 'Next station is Tynemouth, Please mind the gap when alighting at this station. Also the 'Aaa... Doors Closing' announcement heard on Metrocar 4040 and 4002. And Finally, all of the station announcements, e.g. 'The next train at Platform 1 is for Sunderland'.
It is to my understanding that other people have made similar requests before and the easiest way of getting the announcements was via a CD which would be brilliant, I can assure you that these announcements would be for my own personal use.

Yours faithfully,

Joe Charlton Age 11.
