Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

I object to the proposal for the following reasons:
No strategic need because DIRFT is close and is far from being fully developed.
There is little or no spare rail capacity.
There is inadequate capacity on local roads too.
There is no local labour pool, so the work force would have to travel in from outside creating even more congestion and pollution.
We live in a wonderful relatively unspoilt rural area, South Northamptonshire, which will be ruined if this project goes ahead. It will destroy our villages and our countryside.
The noise, light and air pollution will be harmful to the local population, flora and fauna and the general environment.
