state-of-the-art bus station, 1,000 space multi-storey car park, retail space
and a new pedestrian plaza.
Led by our

Department for Transport (DfT), along with a further £2M from the Greater
Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (GLLEP).
which is due to complete in February 2018, has seen City of Lincoln Council partnering
with the DfT, the GLLEP, Lincolnshire Co-op, Network Rail, Lincolnshire County
Council and East Midlands Trains and the central position of the new transport

single structural element of the scheme is the six-level multi-storey car park.
The structure, a large square with each elevation measuring approximately
100m-long, is designed with a steel frame offering significant cost and time
efficiencies as well as streamlining the design to avoid unnecessary columns.
