List of Tyne and Wear Metro stations
St Peter's Metro Station on the Tyne and Wear Metro is the nearest one to the University of Sunderland's St Peter's Campus. The station was built for the Sunderland extension in 2002. It is located at the northern approach viaducts of the Monkwearmouth railway bridge and a short distance south of Monkwearmouth Station Museum.
The southbound platform was completed early and used by National Rail services (operated by Northern Spirit at the time) between 25 February and 16 April 2001, while Sunderland station was being rebuilt for the Metro extension. In order that a four-car DMU could fit the platform, a temporary platform extension was constructed at the northern end.
The station features an installation called White Light  created by Ron Haselden. It consists of illuminated ovals embedded into the glass floor, which change in intensity according to the strength of the wind.
