Central Lincoln unrecognisable with Transport Hub works in motion

This story is over

Demolition work for the Lincoln Transport Hub has already changed the landscape of the city centre beyond recognition

The £29 million scheme, which began on August 29, will eventually see the existing bus station and two pedestrian footbridges demolished to make way for a new state-of-the-art facility, 1,000 space car park, and railway improvements.

The landscape now looks completely different with the car park non-existant and the bus station dug up by archaeologists.

Take a look at the latest progress on site:

Kate Ellis, Assistant Director for Growth and Regeneration at the city council, said: “By improving and connecting facilities for bus passengers, rail users and motorists the hub will not only help people get into and around the city, it will act as a catalyst for further growth and investment.”

Construction on the transport hub is expected to last up to 18 months, with the new facilities open by early 2018.
