Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

There are many reasons for my lodging an objection to this proposal. The main one being the increase in traffic as this area is already congested and often comes to a standstill during peak times. The department of Transport has already indicated that there will be severe congestion on the M1 J15-17 without this development. The proposed Northampton Gateway would be 18 miles away from existing larger facilities meaning a large convoy of HGVs on mass in this area. The site will destroy not only the life and soul of many villages, but the proposed 520 acres contains wildlife habitats that gives sanctuary to many of the wild life species that have been present in this area for hundreds of years.
