Willmott Dixon has been appointed to deliver the £25m transport hub in Lincoln which was recently announced by the City of Lincoln Council

The company is already building a new University Technical College in the city and will further increase its presence when it starts work on the hub, which will improve the city’s transport infrastructure and modernise the city-scape.

The project will see Willmott Dixon construct a new bus station, improve the current train station, create a dual-purpose footbridge to link St Mary’s Street and Tentercroft Street and deliver a space multi-storey car park.

"This is another significant project for Lincoln that we are pleased to be delivering. The transport hub is a crucial aspect to the city centre’s regeneration, which will benefit residents, businesses and visitors – and importantly help to prepare the growing city for further development."

Nick Heath, operations director for the East Midlands at Willmott Dixon

Nick Heath continues, “The creation of the transport hub will help unlock the west side retail and Lindum Gate developments, creating a more accessible and fluid way for people to travel through the city. Features of the project such as the new footbridge will make the city easier to travel through for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers alike. We are all very excited to be part of such an important project which will have a considerable positive impact on the city and beyond.”

Willmott Dixon will deliver the hub through the Scape National framework, and one key focus will be using local labour throughout the project, with materials also sourced locally whenever possible.

A site team of approximately 80 will deliver the project, including the 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.

Alongside Willmott Dixon, other local consultants include: John Roberts Architects Ltd, Morgan Tucker Consulting Engineers and Globe Consultants Ltd. 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.”
