Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I am objecting to the proposal of putting further pressure on the infastructure of Northampton . The link via Valley way does (A45 not continue as a dual carriageway for the stretch which joins the A14 at Thrapston.
Most of the roads that lead from Northampton are single carriageway i.e. to Market Harborough, Kettering, Newport Pagnell, are single carriageway.
We already have a large distribution centre at DIRFT (Crick) so this is duplicating this.
The environmental effect must also be considered in the area which would no doubt have a huge impact on many villages in the area.
