Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 29 June 2018
From Lesley Marr


This development is surplus to requirements, and will be detrimental to quality of life for those of us living in close proximity to the development.

There is already a drift facility in Northamptonshire which is under utilised, calling into question the need for this one. Junction 15 is already over subscribed with traffic volume and unable to cope at rush hour.

The increased volume of traffic will exponentially increase the levels of noise pollution and air pollutants. The local area is already subject to high levels of both, and a significant increase will cause nothing but health issues for residents which in turn will put a strain on public services.
