Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 10 July 2018
From Mark Crane-West

Representation

My objections to the proposal are;
- there is already a Rail Freight interchange 18 miles up the M1 which is not at full capacity.
- the roads are already incredibly congested going into Northampton, on to the M1 and down the A508. In event of accidents (which are quite regular) in any of these roads would lead to many lorries driving through Roade and Blisworth.
- Increase in air, noise and light pollution which will lead to a massive change to what is currently a very rural area.
