Plans for Lincoln transport hub move a step closer

Plans for an ambitious transport hub that would regenerate central Lincoln could soon move a step closer.

City of Lincoln Council’s Executive will be asked tonight to agree the next stages of development that will allow the £29 million Central Lincoln Transport Hub scheme to progress.

Plans for the project were revealed in January this year. The scheme includes the creation of an integrated transport hub, comprising a new fit-for-purpose bus station adjacent to an improved train station, dual-purpose footbridge over the railway connecting St Mary’s Street and Tentercroft Street, and a 1,000 space multi-storey car park.

A new, fit for purpose transport hub is vital to ensure the city’s economic future and this is a hugely important project for the people of Lincoln, in addition to visitors and businesses as well. It’s therefore essential we do everything within our power to progress this much-needed project, which will ensure the vitality of our city centre. An integrated transport interchange in the heart of the city to serve residents, businesses and visitors, achieving the growth the city needs.

Man wanted on prison recall

Police are urging a man wanted for recall to prison to hand himself in. A warrant was issued for the arrest of 24-year-old Ashley Fulcher two weeks ago after he breached his licence conditions.

Ashley, if you see or hear this appeal, our advice is simple – hand yourself in. By remaining at large you are only making the inevitable outcome worse for yourself and prolonging your stay in prison when we catch up with you. We are also asking members of the public who see Ashley Fulcher to contact us straight away.
