Press Release - 17 May 2007

BBEG reply to Mark Simmonds MP

Mark Simmonds MP
House of Commons

17 May 2007

Dear Mr Simmonds

Thank you for your letter of the 15th May.

We are delighted that you have taken the time to read the articles written, in particular the one published in the "New Civil Engineer" this week, which I understand has a readership of some 30% local authority engineers, together with 40% consultants who produce reports for these local authorities.

We genuinely want to see some progress and hope that we are not about to encounter a "digging in of heels" to attempt to prove us all wrong, but rather embrace the newly elected Borough Council and all work together - open and honest communication - to achieve the satisfactory outcome that we all so want to see.

With that in mind, I would welcome the opportunity to carry out an interview with you as part of our media video, entitled 'Vox Popularis – Voice of the People' - please let me know your availability over the coming weeks. You have my own personal assurance that we wish to make progress on the delivery of a major road scheme for Boston and hope we can all demonstrate that fact, openly and honestly, to our town's very patient Bostonians.

We look forward to hearing back from you.

Yours sincerely

Robert Fisher
Chair, Boston Bypass & Economic Growth Pressure Group (BBEG)

BBEG meet with Mark Simmonds MP
BBEG Chairman Robert Fisher states: "It was a very revealing meeting, and it also gave us the chance to reaffirm our group's stance that a bit-part solution will not be acceptable - we do not want to be passed off with another John Adams Way by widening existing roads - the only solution is the provision of a decent road infrastructure around the town."
