Incredible bird’s eye images of the city show Transport Hub taking shape

This story is over

Some impressive bird’s eye images of the £30 million Lincoln Transport Hub works have been released, giving a glimpse of how the city’s new bus station and multi-storey car park will look.

The new bus station is expected to open by December this year, with the scheme fully complete by February 2018.

Images commissioned by the City of Lincoln Council from the skies above the project give a unique few of the city streets.

Contractors began to tear down the old structure on November 15, 2016, after an eight-week long archeological dig on the site.

The £30 million scheme includes:

  • New, state-of-the-art bus station
  • 1,000 space multi-storey car park
  • Pedestrian plaza connecting the new facilities with the train station and the city centre

Take a look at the work so far:

City of Lincoln Council Leader Ric Metcalfe previously said: “This is a vital scheme for Lincoln’s future.

“Not only will the transport hub provide modern facilities for bus and rail passengers, motorists and cyclists, as well as a more attractive and connected gateway to the city for visitors, it will also regenerate a key area of the city centre and act as a catalyst to drive economic growth in the wider area.”

Here is what the hub will look like when complete:

Road closures on Norman Street, Oxford Street and St Mary’s Street will be in place for the rest of the year and a temporary bus station is being operated from Tentercroft Street.
