I OBJECT to the building of this rail freight terminal.Travelling once or twice a week to and from Northampton I have noticed how much traffic has increased on the M1.To put this terminal in a place that already has a lot of congestion is ludicrous.It will cause disruption because of extra traffic in the local villages when there are problems on the M1.The local environment will also suffer.We are already losing a lot of our farmland birds because of building on our green belt. Also the pollution in the atmosphere from the building of this terminal would cause health problems for the people in the surrounding area.
