You may be aware, a multi-million pound upgrade has been taking place at Lincoln station.

The improvements will include restoration of the Grade II listed building, improved customer facilities, a new waiting room on Platform 3, modern toilets at the front of the station that are accessible to both passengers and the general public - with a parent and baby room, a coffee shop and a brand new micro-pub within the station.

New ticket gates that are being installed at Lincoln, which will help improve the flow of passengers to and from their trains. These gates opened on the 3rd September 2018.

The gates will be split into two areas of operation and will include a new exit from the station. Both gate arrays will be on platform 3 and customers will continue to enter the station as they do today, through the ticket hall and onto the platform. Customers leaving the station after the gates have been opened will use the new exit just 50 meters further down on platform 3.

Splitting up the entrance and exit will allow a better passenger flow through Lincoln station. Both gate arrays will have 3 gates, which consist of 1 wide and 2 narrow, so that they are fully accessible. The new gates will also have the added benefit of allowing customers to operate them with a valid mobile ticket, Smartcard or a conventional orange ticket.

East Midlands Trains hope you will notice the benefit of an improved passenger flow and enjoy the increased ticketing options available.
