Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I would like to make my objections known as a resident of Collingtree Village, on how the railfreight will impact ours and surrounding villages. At present the A45 as a extremly high volume of traffic and is at a standstill at least 3 times a week. Yesterday 12th July 2018, the traffic was queuing on the motorway at junction 15 exit as there was an accident on the A45 6 miles further into Northampton. When/if the A45 is blocked our village is used as a cut through and I can see in future large articulated vechiles will do the same. I can hear the motorway most days and nights and if the volume of traffic increases this will become unbearable.
The air pollution in our village is extremely high from the motorway already and we have to clean our windows/patio's frequently.
Having being to the exhibitions and viewing the plans I am NOT convinced that the measures being taken will resolve any of the above issues and infact will make them worse.
