Sign the 'better roads for Boston' petition

Members of Boston Borough Council's Cabinet, attending an informal information meeting, took the opportunity to sign the Boston Standard petition for a share of Government cash to build better roads for Boston.

More residents have been signing the petition, but the more names are collected the bigger, better and LOUDER the message from Boston will be to the Transport Minister.

The petition campaign has been backed by Boston Borough Council and calls on the Government to give the town a share of extra cash it has made available for traffic schemes.

Cllr Michael Cooper, Leader of Boston Borough Council, pictured signing the petition with Cabinet colleagues, said: " It is vital that we send the biggest, loudest message we can to Government that we deserve a share of this new money. We tick so many boxes - an opportunity to deal with traffic congestion, a plan for that already at an advanced stage, better transportation in an area vital to the nation's food security, a boost to economic development and job creation, more much-needed housing and a chance to address long-standing air quality issues. It's my ambition that every single resident makes their voice heard and signs this petition."

The Government is to announce this summer which schemes, valued from £20 million up to £100 million, have been selected for cash from the National Roads Fund. A successful Boston bid, either at this stage or in the future, would help speed the already-planned distributor road which otherwise might not be substantially complete for years to come.

You can also sign the petition at Municipal Buildings reception, Geoff Moulder Leisure Complex reception and the Guildhall reception.
