Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 13 December 2018
From Gary Rimmer

I categorically strongly object to this proposal with the following reasons:-
Complete destruction of wildlife habitat.
Massive increase of traffic levels and parked cars in the village.
Using DIRFT as an example there will also be a significant increase in crime in the local area.
The rail infrastructure this is proposing to use barely has any spare capacity!
The A43 between the M1 and Towester is at capacity for the majority of the day already with a minor incident causing gridlock now so to add more HGV traffic to is illogical.
Extra employment for the area is not required as unemployment is currently very low.
