Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 22 December 2018
From David Taylor


I object strongly to the development of this project. It has a serious number of flaws, environmental, lack of rail infrastructure to meet the road demands, unnecessary given the empty storage capability only 20-miles further north (Crick) on the M1, it lacks ambition in terms of the longer term transport requirements of the country and commerce.

Lastly, other than meeting the greed of both the property developer and landlord, there exists little facts as to exactly the advantages this site gives given the capability and capacity of similar sites both north and sound of Northampton.
