A new platform canopy should be installed at Stamford railway station by the end of the year.

The old wooden roof was taken down last year after Network Rail found it to be rotten. The company has now been granted planning consent to replace the canopy and is designing a new one.

A spokesman said: “Once this is completed we will begin the tendering process and then, after we have carried out significant refurbishment of the station roof and stonework, construction of the canopy will begin. We anticipate will be towards the end of the year.

“We would like to thank passengers for their patience.”
