Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I strongly object to this development because;
1. Traffic numbers currently are understated. The recording of traffic using the A 508 was collected when there was significant road works on the A 508 between Ashton and Grafton Regis. The Road works were over several months and all normal local traffic found alternative routes.
2. The proposed change to the junction where Ashton Road meets the A508 will make entering and exiting this road dangerous. It is almost a cross road with Rookery Lane (Stoke Bruerne) and a huge amount of traffic crosses this junction and the only safe way currently is by traffic on A508 blocking this junction to enable cars to cross. Traffic lights or roundabout is the only safe option.
