Willmott Dixon – Lincoln Transport Hub

Overview:

The Lincoln Transport Hub is a £30 million regeneration scheme, which will transform Lincoln 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.

Results:

Our engineers have been involved in the project for almost four years now, following the need to redraw the scheme masterplan in late December 2015.

Working in collaboration with Wilmott Dixon and John Roberts Architects, a new proposal was prepared, considered and accepted by City of Lincoln Council in early January 2016.

On approval of the revised masterplan, the scheme was developed alongside numerous stakeholders and end users to enable a planning application to be submitted and for construction to commence in autumn 2016.

The realignment of the existing highways was critical to the scheme and was made more complicated by the presence of a culverted watercourse that bisected the site.
