We present VLA and MERLIN monitoring data of the JVAS gravitational lens system B1030+074. The system was monitored with the VLA from February 1998 to October 1998 at 8.4-GHz during which the VLA was at its A, BnA and B configuration. The 47 epochs of observations have an average spacing of approximately 5 days. Ten MERLIN snapshots were obtained in the L-band (1.7 GHz) during the months of April, May and June 1998. Preliminary light curves of the two components of the lens system obtained from
