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 befor it was all done)
This work has now increased the number of platforms to 7 and includes new lifts to each platform. There were no lifts to any platform at Peterborough be for.
