Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 21 December 2018
From Heather Closier


I wish to register a very strong objection to Rail Central.

The local road network is already overcrowded and a certain times of day there are always delays due to congestion.The increase in traffic that this development would generate around junctions 15 and15A of the M1 and particularly along the A45 would make the situation much worse.

Our family are keen birdwatchers and we use the network of footpaths around the Blisworth area in persuit of our hobby. This will be impossible if these warehouses are built as the farmland birds would loose their habitat and we would not want to walk along the proposed replacement footpaths as they would suffer from noise and pollution from trains and road traffic.
