Improvements to Access Lincoln Transport Hub start as part of commercial development masterplan

As part of the masterplan for their latest commercial development, Leafbridge, Stirlin Developments have recently started making enhancements to the Access Lincoln Transport Hub in North Hykeham, which is directly adjacent to the site. These enhancements will include the construction of 12 much-needed, additional car-parking spaces and improved vehicular access, which is due to be completed imminently.

Leafbridge is Stirlin’s largest development to date, a 44-acre commercial development located to the South West of Lincoln.

Located within Lincoln’s prime commercial district, Leafbridge will create a new place of enterprise in the city to support Lincolnshire’s growing economy. The development will offer employment space to a large range of businesses, including serviced office space for growing start-ups and small-to-medium enterprises (SME), through to large-scale design and build opportunities, each with dedicated car parking and secure service yards.

The Access Lincoln Transport Hub opposite the Leafbridge site, includes North Hykeham Train Station, which provides a direct connection to Lincoln Central (10 minutes) and Newark Northgate (20 minutes). It also benefits from local bus routes to Lincoln and the surrounding areas, a park and ride service and a hire bike scheme.

Project Manager at Stirlin, Paul Wheatley, says: “Having the North Hykeham Transport Hub at the front of Leafbridge is a real bonus for us, as it increases transport choice for those coming to work on our business park.

“The hub is a real transport success within the area and we are extremely pleased to be able to provide some improvements to the facility, in the form of additional car parking spaces and improved vehicular access, as part of our ongoing works to get Leafbridge ready for occupation early next year.”

Phil Watt, from the Access Lincoln team says: “The Access Lincoln hub is all about encouraging people to leave the car behind and choose a cleaner, greener form of transport. Hopefully these additional improvements will persuade even more people to choose a more sustainable mode of travel, which won’t just be good for the environment, but will also help with local congestion.”
