Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 18 July 2018
From Jeff Lewis


My main concern is that this is a huge development that "crosses the M1 from Northampton" into the heart of this beautiful rural county.

The sheer size of the development threatens the area in several ways, the main one being the increased traffic on a road that is already choked very often and especially when there are closures of the M1, A5, A43.

The M1 (along with all other main arterial routes) is already lined with distribution centres, including DIRFT at Daventry and another at Milton Keynes.
