How can it be a strategic development, when another terminal is barely half an hour away. And is being extended.
Hardly a rail terminal when less than 6% of goods will arrive by rail, due to lack of capacity.
94% of goods will arrive by lorries and at least the same quantities will leave by lorry.
Roads grid locked when a problem on M1, no amount of new road restructuring will solve the issue. When an extra lane was added to the M25, it was at full capacity instantly.
Loss of pleasure and delight in the area in which we have chosen to live, due to enormous buildings, pollution and noise.
