Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

From William Davis


I think the development will provide inadequate economic benefits in relation to the damage to local industry.

The roads are near capacity as it is, without the additional mass of employees and freight.

The damage would be obvious in that blocking the transportation links with more traffic would not only hamper existing businesses, but make incoming and outgoing shipments from the new plant very slow and disjointed.

Thank you for reading.
