Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 03 December 2018
From Bedford Borough Council

Representation

For Bedford Borough Council, the potential impact on increased freight activity on the A428 between Northampton and Bedford is of relevance. In terms of additional road freight movements generated by the site, then any steps which can be taken to secure routeing between the site and Bedford to use the M1 / A421 rather than the A428 should be promoted. Bedford Borough Council would like to be consulted on the development of the Traffic Management Plan, and any ensuing Routeing Strategy, in order to understand and influence the potential impact of the rail freight interchange facility at an early stage.
