Some of the platforms numbers changed in 2014
 
Platform 6
 
Platform 6 is an all new platform that had only opened in 2014. It has been;built along side platform 5 and is part of an island platform with platform 7. Both these platforms have no overhead wires and will be used for services like the Liverpool to Norwich and the Birmingham to Stanstead trains that run mostly on non-wired lines.
 
One of the main plus points is that this platform and all the others at Peterborough station now have lifts. There is a waiting room and WCs
 
The Greater Anglia service from Peterborough to Ipswich uses this platform.Freight to and from the March line also also uses this platform.

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 someof the platforms.
