Railway Crossing at Boston Railway Station - Tuesday 03 April 2007 at 10.15am

Further video evidence of the bottleneck caused by the railway crossing in Boston
Shows the hazards of having a mini-roundabout one side, and a set of traffic lights the other, so close to the railway crossing. Is there room to widen this crossing? Is it safe to widen this crossing? Boston should have a major road scheme around the town with access points to the centre of town - if you agree, please sign our Petition. The Office of Rail Regulation stated to us on 22 March 2007 that, "It is important to stress that Network Rail has not agreed to any scheme here." The BBEG would state that on the grounds of Health & Safety alone, the proposed road widening scheme of Liquorpond Street, and particularly at this level crossing, that is being suggested by Officers at Lincolnshire County Council, should be rejected. We don't want funds to be wasted on basically an extension of John Adams Way! Network Rail have stated to us by letter, dated 29 March 2007, that until they have discussed the matter with Her Majesty's Railway Inspectorate in late April, they would prefer not to comment further.
