Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I strongly object as proposal will drastically change the landscape and lives of all living in Roade and nearby villages. A country way of living will be lost, ruined by excessive air pollution and noise. Presently surrounded by fields and wildlife which will then become huge warehouses covering extensive areas. A bypass that comes so close to the village as to take away part of an historic farm and run so close to house's and a large secondary school, causing a significant health risk from pollution, and mental well being for all these residents that NEED and have EARNED the right to have a quiet life. Excess traffic added to a very congested A508 and M1 jctn 15 is lunacy and misery for anyone concerned. DIRFT at M1 jnctn 18 not being fully utilised proves that there shouldn't be another rail terminal in the same area. The extra jobs are NOT needed by Northampton, commuters will further add to the road chaos.
