Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I wish to strongly object to the proposed Rail Freight Terminals (Roxhill & Ashfield Land) as they are contrary to the West Northants Joint Core Strategy formally adopted in December 2014. There is already adequate provisional at the DIRFT site at Crick which has gained planning approval for further development allowing it to expand until 2031. The proposed development would massively increase traffic congestion through the villages of Collingtree, Blisworth, Roade, Gayton and Milton Malsor on roads that are currently inadequate for current traffic volumes particularly at rush hour.
