About the Transport Hub

The £30 million Lincoln Transport Hub scheme is a significant regeneration project that will transform the city centre - providing a state-of-the-art bus station, 1,000 space multi-storey car park, retail space and a new pedestrian plaza.

Led by City of Lincoln Council, the scheme will also see improvements to Lincoln Central railway station and create a more accessible and attractive gateway to the city.

The scheme has received £11 million funding from the Department for Transport (DfT), along with a further £2 million from the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (GLLEP).

We are working closely with our partners – the DfT, the GLLEP, Lincolnshire Co-op, Network Rail, Lincolnshire County Council and East Midlands Trains – to deliver the scheme by February 2018.

The city council and its partners are making every effort to keep Lincoln moving while it’s improving, but, inevitably with a construction project of this size and significance in a busy city centre, there will be some disruption.

A temporary bus station began operation in Tentercroft Street on Sunday 28 August 2016.
