Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 08 December 2018
From Daniel Marchant


I am writing to object to proposed warehouses that could be built near Junction 15A of the M1 . There is no doubt that the extra traffic that would be generated by this development would cause major problems for local people. There will clearly be major disruption when roadworks take place and when there are breakdowns on the M1 or A45.

My mother runs a domestic cleaning business and her clients expect "on-time" arrivals. She already encounters problems with traffic congestion and this would only get worse with thousands of employees trying to get to work. The area just does not need all these people travelling into it. We already have very low unemployment in the Northampton area and trying to recruit people to work in her business is becoming more and more difficult.
