Boston South Road is Still Closed, advised to take alternative routes.

Boston Airport Express would like to inform our riders about the delay in the reconstruction of Boston Road South caused by sewer work going on in Holbeach. Travelers are advised to avoid taking the road because it’ll be closed. Transportation services by Boston airport express have been taking different routes with their riders to avoid any kind of inconvenience and delay.

The news is. Anglian Water continued to work on the street that was hit by the sinkhole for weeks. This is continuing into next week. It is just the latest delay in a long line of delays. LCC was originally scheduled to begin on Monday, July 4. However, LCC has extended the start date of rebuilding the road to Monday, July 11, and then Monday, Jul 18.

This means that Lincolnshire County Council will not be able to start the road reconstruction as planned on Monday, July 18. The wait for sewer lining repairs to be completed has continued into next week.

So, we request our customers to consider this information while booking a cab in order to avoid any kind of confusion.

While sewer repairs are underway, work crews can’t begin the deep digging to shore up the road’s substrate.

An extensive set of work will be done between Holbeach Primary School and Cecil Pywell Avenue, once the road reconstruction can get underway.

According to the council, these repairs will be done in two phases. The sub-layer will be addressed in the first section. The second part will address the road surface and markings. The road must remain closed until all works are complete.

Coun Richard Davies is the executive member for highways. He stated: “The sewerworks that AW are undertaking are difficult and proving more time-consuming than originally thought.

This means that the rebuilding process will be delayed for at least a few more days. Most such delays are factored in by our automatic reservation system, which is based on google maps live road data.

Numerous flights delayed and cancelled due to bad weather on the east coast.

BOSTON – There’s been numerous delays and cancellations in the vicinity of Logan Airport because of stormy conditions along the East Coast. The FAA requested an emergency ground flight stop at Logan Airport on Thursday evening.

The tarmac reminded me of that of the Southeast Expressway during rush hour. A passenger of Boston Airport Express who was on one of these planes shared this with us. He was coming to watch Thursday evening’s Celtics NBA Finals game but was stuck at the airport in New York as his flight was cancelled.

He said the tickets for Boston Celtics final game was quite costly and that he had managed two tickets with a lot of difficulty. “There is not much I can do about the flight cancellation”, and Mr Barner booked our car service from New York to Boston and reached Boston slightly late but enough to join the second quarter of the Game.
Within the terminals, the frustration was leaking out. The FAA had ordered an emergency ground stop for over an hour following severe weather that affected airports along the East Coast.

“I waited for 11 hours, before the flight finally took off” another passenger told me. “I was 12 hours off the schedule. But I guess it is better to be safe & late than risk the nature fury.”
In the United States More than 188,000 flight delays were reported while 3500 flights were cancelled.

In an announcement, Delta said, “Weather challenges at airports across the northeast today have caused congestion for both arrivals and departures at Boston Logan International Airport. We apologize to customers for any inconvenience as Delta teams work with ATC to get customers on their way as quickly and safely as possible.”

FlightAware estimates that about 10% of flights departing from Logan were cancelled, however an astonishing 34% had delays.
The travel troubles are a result of the executives of airlines meet with Transport Secretary Pete Buttigieg to discuss how airlines can handle the busy summer season.

Gas Prices in Massachusetts break record Overnight

Gas Prices in Massachusetts break record Overnight

People are witnessing a shock with record breaking trends in gas prices this Memorial Day . In this week’s market, prices already at a record level they in  Massachusetts and it continues to set records after record for increasing gas prices with no relaxation in sight. This gets tough for transportation companies in the state. For car service providers in Boston, with luxury vehicles that burn up fuel much faster than regular economic vehicles, this is getting unbearable.

Within Downtown Boston, it feels that the cost of gasoline can range from $4.90 and $5.20 for each gallon. There are some Shell or Gulf petrol stations in the South End that are even asking for $5.60 per gallon. The Cape Cod region is pretty much the same with an average price that is about $4.80 per gallon. So, this is compelling us to add fuel surcharges to our car ride services. 

Gas Prices on the 1st of June 2022 

Average gas price in Massachusetts : 
$4.76 / Gallon
Average gas price in the USA:
$4.67 / Gallon
Average price of Mid-grade gasoline:
$5.09 / Gallon
Average price of Premium Gas :
$5.35 / Gallon
Average price of Diesel : 
$6.25 / Gallon

At an average price of $4.76 the figure is the highest number ever recorded in Massachusetts as per American Automobile Association. It’s quite a leap from the cost of a gallon of gasoline in 2013, when the average price for Massachusetts of $2.92. The increase in the price of gasoline is correlated with the ongoing situation in Ukraine due to the continuing Russian incursion.

Other factors also contribute to the sudden price rise. For instance, crude oil is currently trading at $118 per barrel, which is up 71 percent than a year ago. Additionally, the strain on refineries, who are trying to meet the demand, as more people are returning to work. 

While more people returning to work and international travel and domestic travel starting to rise again was welcome news for taxi cab and car service providers, the fuel price rise is now a dampening factor. 

Summer Tunnel is to be closed for maintenance on weekends from June 10.

This is to alert our riders and visitors to Boston and Logan Airport about the closure of a popular tunnel road that connects Logan Airport to Boston city. If you are taking a Boston car or taxi service, with us or with any other cab companies then this is important for you.

Boston News - Sumner Tunnel Closure Details 2022

The Sumner Tunnel, completed in the 1930s, was one of the first tunnels in the state and also one of the oldest in the country. The city of Boston has changed significantly since the 1930s as well as the Sumner Tunnel is set to undergo restoration. This includes cracks and crumbling cement, reinforced concrete damaged wall panels, corroded lighting fixtures, and exposed rebar on the ceiling that were present for at most two generations.

A lot of people use the tunnel each day, and they need to find a different way to get into the city. Logan International Airport may also be accessible via the tunnel. After months of construction, nobody is able to exit the tunnel during the weekend.

Details of the Reconstruction Plan in Sumner Tunnel

PHASE 1: PARTIALLY CLOSE : Weekends

The work will start on June 10, and continue until the Spring of the next year, at which point the first phase of the project is scheduled to be completed. This phase will feature many enhancements.

The Terminal of Logan Airport in Boston. Logan Airport was evacuated, the suspicious device was identified as PlayStation

Operation at Logan International Airport in Massachusetts was back to normal Monday when Terminal A was evacuated following the discovery of a suspicious item inside a piece of luggage, according to the Boston Police Department.

State police officials said TSA agents at Terminal A were screening checked luggage for a Delta flight when they saw the suspicious item at about 4:05 p.m. Sunday, which prompted them to call for the MSP Bomb Squad, who then called in MSP Hazardous Devices to the scene immediately.

“Troopers with the bomb squad determined that the item was a PlayStation Vita video game console. The device triggered the security checkpoint’s alarm when it went through the X-ray machine, which prompted further inspection from TSA screeners. “

According to state police, the condition of the PS Vita had been compromised either by age or damage prior to showing up at the airport for screening. The degraded state of the console was what caused abnormalities in its image, prompting officials to take extra steps toward investigating.

“For the investigation of the suspicious package found in Terminal A and for the secondary sweep of the terminal, passengers were evacuated to the sidewalk as originally planned.”

“Troopers issued the all-clear just at 5 p.m. They let passengers re-enter their terminals.”

“I had a 6 p.m. flight and I was just getting to the airport. When I got out of the car, a bunch of people ran out screaming, so I got back in the car. I didn’t hear what they were screaming about,” said Pam Lovano. “Then we drove around the terminals again. By the time we got back, Terminal A had been closed by the cops and I could see the people standing outside.”

One person who was from Logan Airport said he was on a plane when he and fellow passengers were told to exit the plane.

A spokesperson from Delta Air Lines said the company will hold flights for the duration of time that is feasible and will allow and re-book customers when needed.

FOR BOSTON, IT’S EITHER SNOW OR NO SNOW.

for boston, it's either snow or no snow

How frosty will Boston be for the locals?

Snow will be widely spread but moderate around lunchtime, according to the forecast. As the breezes transition to the northeast, we’ll see some of the ocean-enhanced snow bands from around the South Shore closer to supper time. This will continue until 10 p.m. when the snow becomes more dispersed and loosens up to merely flurries in regions north and west of the coast. Overnight and into Monday morning commute, snow outbreaks proceed to withdraw to the south. Tomorrow morning, a few snowflakes will be with us before slipping off the Cape around mid-morning.

Snowfall accumulation will most likely be highest over the South Shore and into SE Massachusetts, where some of the persistent zones formed throughout. It will be a different scenario south of Boston, especially towards the Cape, where breezes off the ocean will increase the snow action in the region. All of this was caused by a blocked barrier, which was helped along by ocean-effect snow.

From the North Shore through Boston to Worcester, and locations SE to the Cape and Islands, expect 2-4 inches of snow. 4-6 inches possible over the South Shore near Plymouth, Marshfield, and Duxbury, with some ocean-enhanced snow bands forming inland to Middleboro and Carver.

What can we anticipate from the weather in Boston this week?

Monday morning will experience cold weather which will fall until after midnight, then drop off as the sun comes up. It is forecast to rain 3 to 5 inches, with a few inches more possible if there is a little extra moisture associated in the region. Tuesday will be chilly, but there will be less breeze, making it somewhat tolerable for outdoor activities. Temperatures will drop again into the 40s on Wednesday, before rising to the 50s on Thursday and Friday, with rainstorms possible from Thursday evening until Friday early. Saturday will be extremely dry, with daytime temperatures in the low 40s.

What do you think the weather will be like on V-DAY?

For Valentine’s Day, which falls on Sunday, the weather will be much cooler, with high temperatures only hitting the low 20s. This will be accompanied by a chilly wind from the northwest at 10–20 mph, resulting in wind chills in the low double figures to teens for the majority of the day. As the community gears itself for Valentine’s Day and expects to spend it outside with near and dear ones.

The snowstorm places a heavy burden on US airlines, causing thousands of flight disruptions.

According to the National Weather Service, the Nor’easter would cause severe snowstorms and render movement “extremely difficult for passengers.” Flight tracking website FlightAware said that around 4,900 US flights were canceled between Friday and Sunday. 

When the cycle of cancellation continued, the passengers who were waiting for their flight were stunned, causing individuals to become enraged since their travel options were curtailed. Many airport transport providers in Boston, like us, were also affected due to the disruptions.

According to analysts, the US airline business has already been impacted by COVID and innovative forms of technology such as – Zoom, which have limited individuals to their homes and have had a negative impact on the sector. 

The weather has exacerbated the difficulties faced by the aviation sector, which is still recovering from disruption caused by the Omicron coronavirus strain. Because of an upsurge in COVID-19 diagnoses within workers, airlines have been forced to cancel flights in the past. The next set of questions for the US airline is how long they will need to keep their passengers awaiting and just how much further they can endure.

As travelers waited for their aircraft to take off, the terrible news of a delay shocked the whole US airline system and the travelers who were flying with them. The present weather conditions have had a significant impact on US airlines since sales were already sluggish, and now the storm has damaged the sector again, worsening the situation.

As passengers were comfortably traveling and promoting the aviation sector, a storm blew away all efforts and destroyed the whole administrative structure.

The snowstorm follows a similar snowstorm that swept a span of eastern North America – from Georgia to Canada – only two weeks earlier, knocking out electricity to industries and homes and postponing flights. The United States Airlines looks forward to the good old times when passengers could travel freely and without so many prohibitions.
