Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 04 July 2018
From Marion Barlow


I object to the Gateway proposal for several reasons.
I live in anorthampton Road, Roade and would be greatly affected if it went ahead. The traffic along the A508 at times is horrendous now, and would be so much worse. Supposedly the lorries would not come through Roade, but workers etc would.

We would see a continuous glow in the sky from our garden all night.

The habitat would be ruined forever, with the loss of acres of furtile farm land.

Unemployment is low round here, so people from out of area would have to take the jobs....where would they live??

There are already 'rail freight depots' within 20 miles which are not used to capacity, so this one is not needed.
The proposed by-pass is a red-herring which would make conjestion worse for us who live here.

Please see the needs of our comunity before the profits of big buiness
