On the day I went to Peterborough station most East Coast up trains were now using the new platform 3. The new lights at this end of platform 1 were still not in use and temporary lights which were on all the day were being powered from a generator van.
 
The old Platform 2 at Peterborough station has been  renumbered as platform 1. The old Platform 1 was the up bay platform  and its track has been removed, so as they could renumber the old platform 2 as platform 1.
 
The new platform 1 will be used for the new 12 coach Thamslink servies to South London and Gatwick Airport which started in 2018 as well as the East Coast  up trains to London Kings Cross and East Midlands Trains to Lincoln.

 The old Bay platform at Peterborough station
 
The old Bay platform at Peterborough station  (which was platform 1) with the track removed in February 2014.
 
Passengers only used the right hand side. The fence is new. The wires are to the temporary lights.
 
This bay platform could only hold 4 car EMUs. The new longer platform 1 goes over were the track came into the bay.
 
Nothing much has been done to the old bay apart from a tidy up, and it still in 2018 looks much the same.

Some of the platforms numbers changed in 2014
At long last Peterborough railway station has some, New platforms. These were needed for when it all goes pear shape, there are just not enough platforms to go round. Even with all going well trains often had to wait for a platform on the river Nene railway bridge.
 
On Tuesday 13th December 2011 Network Rail announced a 43 million pound upgrade of Peterborough railway station starting in April 2012 and to be completed by December 2013. ( There was still ongoing work  in Feruary 214 and it was to be April 2014 be for it was all done)
 
This work has now increased the numer of platforms to 7 and includes new lifts to each platform. There were no lifts to any platform at Peterborough be for.
 
The New Layout at Peterborough station has seen: The old bay (platform1) removed. Platform 2 renumber as platform 1 and made longer. Platform 3 renumbered as platform 2 and also made longer. The all New Platform 3 is next to the up fast line, built on waste land. Platform 4 and 5 remain as they were, but hve been made a little longer. Platform 6 and 7 are an all new Island platform.  A new goods avioding line has also been built along side platform 7.
 
Most platforms are signaled both ways with new signals on some of the platforms.
