We're adding more and longer platforms to support increased train services, and we're improving the station facilities
We're not just improving train services and easing congestion, we're also improving the station to give a better experience for passengers.
Peterborough is served by a complex mix of local commuter and long-distance train services covering all points of the compass. Its proximity to London as well as its centrality to serving such a mix means rail is not just vital to Peterborough, but to the growth in the overall demand for rail.
Installing two new platforms to the west side of the station, and lengthening platforms 2, 3, 4 and 5 will accommodate additional and longer 12-carriage trains.
The work will mean improved train services, with more trains to different destinations, and shorter journey times. The work will also support the predicted 100% growth in demand for services to London over the next 25 years.
We're increasing the feight capacity between Felixstowe, the Midlands and beyond, and the new track layout to the west of the station will allow for longer freight trains.
The £43m improvements at Peterborough station will see the addition of a new station building, and all platforms easily accessible via new footbridges and lifts.
