I think the metro station is staying where it is and the bus station will move to the metro.

The NEXUS report has:

The decision means that a new "landmark" building on Fowler Street and Keppel Street can be built which will house both the Metro and bus concourse. This will result in the eventual demolition of the existing Metro station and the bus stops on Keppel Street.

The metro station at present will be demolished and a new metro station will be combined with the bus station.

originally for a long while Nexus wanted a platform on the opposite site of the metro line but unable due to restrictions and cost.

I didn't know that.

Wonder if we will hear anymore about the extensions they want to do soon..... i think they wanted the Metrocentre to be first.... which will be good, not sure how it work though.

cant see the metro extending to the metrocentre anytime soon or years, I think mostly there be looking at joining the south hylton station to pelaw via leamside line but I cant see that happening anytime soon neither as it would cost a packet and also trying to get the train companies involved and the leamside line if opened could be the emergency line to south if anything happens at the birtley section route at present everything has to go through Sunderland station , another proposal was to reopen the line between East boldon and the shields line and extending it towards grangetown and possible Seaham. but you have the train traffic along the Sunderland to Seaham section and the Grand central operating that route.
