East Coast class 91110 Battle of Britain Memorial Flight leaves the renumbered platform 1 at the rear of a train to London on the 21st of Febuary 2014. Platform 1 has been made longer and now goes under Crecent Bridge, which is why the bay had to go.
 
This Page is about the new (re-numbered) Platform 1 which is part of this upgrade at Peterborough railway station.
 
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 then used for the new 12 coach Thamslink servies to South London and Gatwick Airport which started in Febuary 2018  using platform 1 and 2 and 3.
 
These new services using Thameslink's new class 700 trains were to go pear shape when the new time table started in June 2018. With Many trains not running or very late. The TV and press were to be full of it in 2018. Too few Drivers, or those that were at work, not yet trained on these new services were some of the reasons.

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.
