Dear Councillor Webb
TURNING OFF THE
TRAFFIC LIGHTS AT BARGATE ROUNDABOUT, BOSTON
Further to our group’s discussion with you at the LCC
Public Consultation in Boston on Saturday 15 July 1006, you
stated to us that, “After today, I would be very foolish
to return to LCC and do nothing for Boston. It is clear that
Boston needs both a short term and long term solution.”
You also stated that you would look at turning off the traffic
lights at Bargate roundabout as one of the short term solutions.
Shortly after our discussions, BBEG group member Ted Brooks
wrote to you on 31 July 2006, asking when you are going to do
as you said you would, and turn off the traffic lights on Bargate
bridge, adding, “On Saturday 22nd July my wife thought
that you had done it because when she drove round there the
lights were out and the traffic was flowing freely - but alas
it was due to a power failure during a thunderstorm and they
were quickly put on again.”
To date, you have not replied to Ted Brook’s letter or
indeed done anything about the traffic lights it would seem,
as you said you would?
Does this mean that you have in fact returned to LCC and done
nothing for Boston? Or perhaps have you been prevented from
doing so by someone? We look forward to receiving your response

The BBEG say: "You've had our views since 1992!
lights are here to stay."
