I would like to object to the development at junction15 for the following reasons.
Junction 14 and the M1 cant cope with the amount of traffic we already have, another 16500 vehicles would be a catastrophe.
As soon as the bypass is built developers will start to infill between Roade and the new road.
The bypass itself will cut through some lovely wildlife areas and destroy good farmland.
With DIRFT only just up the M1 and not full why do we need another terminal on a rail line that is already running at full capacity.
As a former railways employee, I know the amount of noise that is involved with trains in yards, coupled with the amount of light needed for working at night, ibelieve this would be detrimental to life in all of the surrounding villages.
