originally their was 2 possible sites for the bus station, Park Lane or Where Debenhams is now, The council/Nexus choosed Park Lane because of the Metro extension at Park Lane and probably because of the civic centre workers (politics), wish it was Debenhams site and Debenhams could of been built at park lane site, the buses would of entered on Green terrace as rows and exit out on Crowtree road and would of been incorporated into the bridges extension at the time.

Where Debenhams is now might of being a better choice, then it would of being in the city centre... although, then what would of gone on the current Park Lane bus station site?

Taking a step back, the siting of the interchange at the opposite end of Park Lane to Debenhams, could have regenerated the whole area.
There was the redevelopment of the pictures, the new bars etc.
However, the newness and cleanliness created by the redevelopment, didn't really last...

It appears that the Metro Station and the Post Office will be the next victims of the 365 Masterplan...

Looks like it could go ahead then, about time shields had a decent bus/metro station.

I've used South Shields Metro Station quite a few times recently and, I have to say, those stairs are not a welcoming prospect. I definitely prefer to alight rather than board.

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.

Proposals for road layout available in link above.
Obviously this will impact on bus services both in the short and long term.
