Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Junction 15 of the M1 is already unable to cope with the flow of commuters like me travelling from Northampton to Milton Keynes or further afield on a daily basis. The upgrade of the smart motorway will take until 2022 and has made me late by half hour everyday since it started. The A5 and A508 cannot cope with the extra flow since the m1 upgrade started. There is one single traffic incident in the morning rush hour and it all grinds to a halt for hours on every route! How on earth is this area going to cope with thousands of lorry' s every week? It simply will be an unmitigated disaster for the local residents trying to simply get to work on a daily basis.
