Some platforms numbers changed in 2014
Platform 7
 
Platform 7 is part of an all new Island platform which has been built were the goods loops were along side platform 5.  This new Island platform has been given the platform numbers of 6 and 7.  Cross Country and East Midland Trains and Geater Anglia will use these platforms with trains to and from the March line. There are no overhead wires on these two platforms
 
 
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.
