Welcome to Boston
A new gateway to Boston is taking shape, demonstrating a welcome to a town which is developing in an exciting and vibrant way.
Those travelling on the A16 are already greeted by modern business premises before reaching the new roundabout at Wyberton with the promise of new development on both sides of the main road.
There will shortly be new residential and commercial development on one side and a new community-centred football stadium on the other.
Construction work has been continuing apace for the past few weeks and now sets the scene for Boston's new quarter, presenting a new face for those arriving to do business, shop, use leisure facilities and live here.
The Quadrant has so far seen sensitive construction of a new roundabout with minimal disruption to traffic and now paves the way for the new distributor road through to London Road. Work on the London Road end of this new route will begin shortly
The new road will relieve some of the traffic which currently crosses Boston town centre and will open up land for 146 new homes and commercial use. The total new homes for the entire project will number 502.
On the other side the new road will lead to the new home of Boston United and a modern stadium built with added-value community use in mind.
The new A16 approach is heralded by two new commercial premises at Kirton - the Sports Bike Shop, which is now open for business, and a new showroom for Duckworth Jaguar and Land Rover, due to open early next year.
Cllr Peter Bedford, Leader of Boston Borough Council, said: "All of this signals a bright future for Boston and demonstrates the confidence that business have in the area."
