A series of road closures and diversions have been set in the area surrounding Lincoln Central railway station as part of the Lincoln Transport Hub project.
St Mary’s Street and Oxford Street will be resurfaced in stages from next week. Closures and diversions are as follows:
The first road closure will be in operation along St Mary’s Street from Monday, October 16 until Friday, October 20. Pedestrian access will, however, be maintained along St Marys Street.
The road will be closed from the High Street/St Marys Street junction. Vehicular access to the railway station will be off Oxford Street via a temporary diversion route from Wigford Way along Silver Street and down Broadgate and accessing the railway station car park via the Pelham Bridge underpass.
Taxi ranks will be moved from St Mary’s Street to Wigford Way during this work.
The second road closure is from Monday, October 30 until Friday, November 3 and will take place along Oxford Street.
This will mean the road east of the railway station to Pelham Bridge will be closed. Vehicular access to the railway station will be via the completed St Mary’s Street access into the station forecourt.
The taxi ranks will be on St Mary’s Street as well as Wigford Way during this time. Access to the new Network Rail Car Park on Oxford Street will be closed to enable the final re-surfacing and white lining works to be completed.
Access for delivery vehicles and HGVs will also be affected during these closures.
The finishing touches are now taking place on the new Lincoln Transport Hub with the new multi storey car park due to open on Friday, November 17.
The road improvements currently taking place along St Mary’s Street and Oxford Street will also be complete in time for the opening of the new car park.
The new 1,000 space car park is the first part of the £30 million development and will open its doors to its first visitors in time for the Lincoln Christmas Lights switch on.
The New Year will see the opening of the new state-of-the-art bus station – which will be open to the public to view ahead of its official operational date.
Once complete, Lincoln Transport Hub will create a modern, transportation hub and gateway to the city.
