I strongly object to this proposal. The resulting increased road traffic will lead to toxic levels of exhaust pollution for residents. At present when a road 'incident' leads to a road closure and diversion, this results in gridlock, especially when the M1 motorway is closed. If this proposal went ahead, the traffic flow would be unbearable whenever an accident /breakdown led to a road closure.
There is already a transport hub to the north at Crick. We do not need another so close to an existing one.
