Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 22 December 2018
From Marcus Woolley


The level of pollution from the M! is already causing poor health for both my wife and I. [redacted]. The extra heavy goods emissions will make the situation much worse. The extra traffic and people in what is a rural/residential are is just not appropriate. If this was a real road and rail interchange I would have less objection but very little if any of this freight will be carried by rail. The development should really be entitled huge warehouse superhub with a tiny bit of rail freight, If we are to face facts DIRFT still has expansion available and the governments rail freight strategy doesn't identify as this necessary.

In summary, it will spoil a excellent rural/residential location, add pollution, which the developers admitted at an open meeting they had not modelled except in the immediate area and therefore cost lives and increase flooding in the area.
