Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I object to the Rail Freight Terminal as it will cause much extra traffic on the M1 and the local road network. My children are members of the Northamptonshire Library service and we regularly travel to the library at East Hunsbury. We also visit the retail park on the Nene Valley Way. In both cases we often encounter traffic problems in the afternoon after school. The increase in traffic that this development would generate around Junction15 of the M1 and along the A45 would probably result in us travelling to Milton Keynes rather than our preferred choice of Northampton.
