BOSTON (AP) - A self-driving car company has been given the go-ahead to expand testing in Boston.

The city says nuTonomy has received approval to expand the test area across the Seaport and Fort Point neighborhoods on city-owned roads.

The autonomous car company has completed about 230 miles of test-driving at Raymond L. Flynn Marine Park. The park is an industrial and business area with no stoplights. Nutonomy reported it had no crashes or incidents.

Company officials say additional tests will include traffic signals and bridges and will require increased interaction with vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians.

NuTonomy’s general counsel tells The Boston Globe the company hopes to be on the new test roads soon, depending on weather conditions. The company can only test during daylight hours in fair weather.
