|List of stations|
Sited on the Durham Coast Line, the station was opened in 2002 as part of the extension of the Metro system from Pelaw to South Hylton. Its presence on an embankment required the building of prominent elevator shafts and staircases to access the station platforms.
Trains towards South Hylton via Sunderland, and towards Airport via Gateshead and Newcastle serve the station roughly every 12 minutes throughout the day, and every 15 minutes on Sundays. Mainline rail services provided by Northern between Sunderland and Newcastle pass through the station without stopping, in addition to freight trains and empty Grand Central workings between Heaton depot and Sunderland.
Although no direct bus interchange is provided, the station lies a short distance from bus stops served by Go North East and Stagecoach for services towards North Shields, South Shields, Jarrow town centre and Sunderland.
The station has parking for 54 cars and 10 bicycles.
