Willmott Dixon to build £25M Lincoln transport hub

Willmott Dixon has been appointed to deliver a £25M transport hub in Lincoln.

The contractor will build a new bus station, improve the current train station, create a dual-purpose footbridge, and deliver a space multi-storey car park.

Client for the scheme is City of Lincoln Council.

Willmott Dixon’s contract covers demolition of existing structures surrounding the bus and rail stations. This includes removing the current pedestrian footbridge and platform footbridge over the railway - both currently unfit for purpose - in preparation for construction of the transport hub’s dual purpose footbridge.

Architect for the hub is John Roberts Architects and the consulting engineer Morgan Tucker.

Nick Heath, operations director for the East Midlands at Willmott Dixon, said: “The transport hub is a crucial aspect to the city centre’s regeneration. Features of the project such as the new footbridge will make the city easier to travel through for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers alike.

“The new footbridge will be fully accessible and will be situated high enough to allow electrified rail lines to be fitted. These features will help to improve facilities at Lincoln Railway Station and importantly bring it in line with Network Rail standards.”
