Firstly, I wish to object on the basis of air pollution. Living in Collingtree 41 years,we can already smell and 'taste on the tongue' the effects of the M.1.traffic the volume of which I believe exceeds that of urban motorway levels. Secondly, as a former Ch/Supt Police (traffic) I have see the steady increase of vehicles in the Northampton area and find it difficult to accept that the projected increase of traffic, (at national level and the result of this development) is not a step too far also generating the use of unsuitable alterative roads in the area.
