The BBEG continue their media video entitled "Vox Popularis - Voice of the People"

Video evidence of Boston's gridlock in March & April 2007 (Last updated 05 May 2007)

The BBEG are putting together a media video over the next few weeks showing the extent of the problem in Boston and hope to interview key personnel who should be in a position to do something about it.

If you own a business that is suffering because of the ongoing traffic congestion in Boston as well as the lack of a bypass/distributor road/ring road (call it what you like) and would be willing to be interviewed on camera during our filming, please get in touch with us: [email protected]

We will be updating this page with progress of the video shoot, so please check back regularly for further information.
