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.
The Armley Mills Industrial Museum in Leeds has teamed up with the Friends of Sierra Leone National Railway Museum to celebrate the 100th birthday of Nellie the Engine - the Central African country's oldest surviving locomotive, which was actually built in Leeds. Gaynor Barnes reports.

SEVERE M62 lane closed on exit slip road and slow traffic eastbound at J26, M606 (Chain Bar), because of an accident involving two lorries.
Drivers in Lincoln are being warned that Pelham Bridge will be closed overnight this weekend.
The closure is part of the Canwick Road improvement scheme and will allow for new tidal flow systems to be tested. The project is now in the final stages after five months of work.
Major improvement works to the A19 South start today.
The works will take 16-weeks to complete and affect more that 20,000 vehicles that rely on it every day.
