Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 15 July 2018
From Simon Alan George Mitchell

The consequences of building Roxhill's Northampton Gateway will mean a) extra freight trains on the Northampton loop resulting in reduced passenger rail service opportunities for Northampton b) increased road traffic on our already crowded roads with the increased air pollution that will create. c) the loss of many acres of farmland and the associated wildlife habitat. These disruptions to people's lives are not really necessary or needed as the existing larger facility at DIRFT is only 18 miles away.
