Stop Rail Central. This really is not the right place in the country for such a large project.
The villages all around are so congested already with houses, and traffic
The air pollution levels are so high at the moment ,for children walking to school,babies in prams and wheel chair people who at the level of the exhaust pipes in the passing traffic is not good for there health.
The amount of very large lorries going through the village every day (including Sundays) is so high. The A508 do not cope with this very well at all.The lorries such you towards them as they pass.
The roads are in such a poor state of repair now , more traffic would only increase this problem.
Every time we have a problem on the M1 the traffic have too come via Roade or Blisworth village.
Regularly we have both roads A508 and A43 with accidents on them so the area in the country is almost at a standstill.
By concreting over all this land will cause flooding to so many villages .
Please rethink this plan for this area. The warehouses all around us are not full now. Plus we have not enough people to fill the work places .
Work in this area is at its highest and not enough people to fill .
Houses are being built as fast as they can to house the local people and the schools and Doctors surgery cannot manage the amount the people now.
Stop this unrealistic plan, it is not needed
