Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 18 July 2018
From Ian Hill


I have grave concerns about the proposed Roxhill project.

Pollution is already high and is affecting my asthma. Since moving to the area in October 2016 my medication has been increased.

Surrounding rounds leading to theA45 ( Rowtree rd being an example) are working at full capacity during rush hour. With additional housing being built. Redeveloping the J15/ M1 will not resolve the traffic problems on the additional heavy goods vehicles related to Roxhill are added.

Accidents regularly occur on the M1 between J 16 & J 14. Resulting in traffic moving onto surrounding roads. The smart motorway will not resolve the problems especially with the Roxhill traffic added.
