Going, going… Workers tear down former Lincoln bus station

This story is over

Demolition work is steaming ahead on the site of the former Lincoln bus station, making way for the new £30 million Lincoln Transport Hub.

As reported previously, contractors began to bring down the concrete station after an eight week archaeological dig on the site.

The structure will be completely removed before Christmas with work on the transport hub to begin in January.

In the meantime the area, which previously housed a central road network, NCP car park and the city’s buses, is almost unrecognisable.

Contractors are working to clear the path for the new hub, which will be completed in two phases.

The first phase will include a dual purpose footbridge, new bus station, shops and car park. Construction is to be completed by January 2018.

Phase two of the project will see a new footbridge over the railway linking Tentercroft Street to Lincoln city centre.

Road closures on Norman Street, Oxford Street and St Mary’s Street will be in place for another year. 

A temporary bus station is being operated from Tentercroft Street.
