In a letter to the BBEG on 3 August 2006 you stated
about Boston that: "SATURN is recognised
by the DfT as an appropriate technique for traffic modelling
and scheme assessment and has been used for many years by consultants
and local authorities as one of the "industry standard"
Yet in the Highways PDG Report for Lincoln
Traffic Model for the meeting in September 2006 you state: "...even
if the SATURN Model were to be updated, there would still remain
the shortfalls and limitations discussed earlier in this report,
which in the longer term, could weaken the County Council's
ability to convince government of the need to bring forward
transport improvements in the Lincoln area."
Does this not highlight that firstly our concerns about the
validity of the Transport Strategy findings for Boston are justified
and that secondly once again there is one rule for Lincoln
and another for Boston?
We look forward to receiving your response to this email and
also your reply to our previous letter/email dated 6 August
that we await your reply to (in which we stated, "We look
forward to receiving your response to our comments and a copy
of the Contract between Lincolnshire County Council and Jacobs
here to read the letter... ).

lights are here to stay."
