Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Representation

Once again yet another huge warehouse complex (this time with a rail interchange) has been proposed along the M1 in Northamptonshire. There is clear disregard to pollution levels (air & noise), disregard to the major increase to traffic levels in an already full M1 section and no clear reasoning given as to why this needs to be built when only 18 miles away there is the Daventry rail-freight interchange with capacity. For local people this is a disaster in the waiting.
