Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I most vehemently object to the Roxhill proposed development:
1. The road system around Junction15 is extremely congested already with frequent queues at the roundabout. Extra traffic,especially diesel HGVs, would make a bad situation worse.
2. Areas around the site are already exposed to high levels of air pollution from the M1.
3. This area is productive farmland. Why lose this to warehousing when the Drift Rail Freight Interchange has underused capacity.
