Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 19 July 2018
From Sharron Bland


I live in Courteenhall Village. It is already impossible to turn right towards Northampton due to the amount of traffic using the A508. If there is a problem on the motorway the road is often at a stand still, sometimes in both directions.

Any extra traffic feeding on to the A508 can only cause more chaos make leaving our village practically impossible with out having to drive miles out of the way.

Also the lane that leads to our village and through to the Wootton - Hanslope Road is already used as an alternative route by people who know they can avoid junction 15. This lane is not well maintained and all the extra traffic just breaks up the edges of the road as it isn't suitable for some of lorries that cut through!

I dread to think of the chaos that the development will cause let alone the amount of extra road traffic once it is built.
