The funding will also be used to install a natural gas fuelling station at the Stagecoach depot on Deacon Road, Lincoln.
Councilor Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways and Transportation, said: “I am delighted that our bid for funding was successful. Not only does this news represent a quarter-of-a-million-pound injection into the local economy, it will also help us to significantly improve air quality in Lincoln.
“Working alongside Stagecoach, we identified 11 buses that operate on some of the county’s most polluted streets. By reducing the emissions of these vehicles we can improve air quality in those areas, which will improve the quality of life for people living there,” he concluded.
