Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I am concerned that there is little need for a rail freight interchange, existing facilities 20 minutes further North may not be at full capacity. I am concerned about the traffic congestion and air quality impacts. I cycle on the minor roads in this area which may increasingly become rat runs. Any increase in population will increase pressure on GPS and schools. I am not convinced that any economic benefits will be a benefit to the local community.
