MP takes area traffic woes to Parliament


Boston’s MP has raised the town’s traffic woes at the House of Commons after questioning the new Parliamentary Under-Secretary for the Department of Transport.

Speaking to Andrew Jones during a debate on transport Matt Warman said: “During the election campaign the then roads minister came to my constituency to consider a new Boston distributor road and the opportunities it might present.

“It has been on the drawing board for the past 60 years, so will this minister commit to continue the good work of his predecessor and come to look at that site again to see when we can finally get some shovels in the ground?”

Mr Jones responded by committing to continue the good work and said he would be delighted to meet Mr Warman.

When speaking in parliament Mr Warman was referring to the distributor road which forms part of the Quadrant development which includes 500 houses and a new home for Boston Uited.

Speaking to The Standard Mr Warman said he would be building a case for better roads by visiting other services such as health and police to get evidence.
