Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I live in Collingtree village, the opposite side of the motorway to the proposed rail-freight.
Consequences of allowing this rail freight will increase local traffic significantly through our beautiful village, of which people already speed through and use as a short cut from village to village to get to the motorway. The central village high street has a primary school and pre school on it and children will be put at increased risk of accidents with an increase in volume of traffic, mainly of people in a hurry to get to work!
Additionally, being so close to a rail freight will have a negative impact on property value in 5e surrounding villages and an increase in noise volume, which is already very significant due to the motorway.
