Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 12 July 2018
From Nicola Wood


I object to this proposal as the area can not cope with the increased traffic. One accident on M1 or A5 gridlocks the area without this new proposal. The A45 in the Northampton in the mornings is a nightmare already, changes to the road network will impact the Queen Eleanor section of the road and beyond.

The rail freight is being proposed with others relatively close and not at capacity. The promise of lots of jobs with no detail of what the jobs are. Many will be lorry drivers so not based locally.
