Before and after Heworth metro station on platform 1 side there are lights on poles. The one before the station is white and the one after is blue. Does anybody know what these are? Not sure if they are in use or just a leftover relic from the railway days, like that points indicator between Chichester and Tyne Dock.

They're present on all sub-surface stations, so you'll see them in the tunnels, at Regent Centre, Four Lane Ends and other locations.

They're triggered by the emergency alarm on the platform, and if lit the driver of any departing train stops, and any train entering the station does so at significantly reduced speed.
