Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

I am concerned that a 'realignment of pedestrian pathways' along Danes Camp way, and the roundabout by Hunsbury Hill Avenue and Hunsbarrow Road has been mentioned, but the plans submitted do not show the existing, or any proposed footpaths or pedestrian access. The Hunsbury Hill estate is currently very cut off, and the only access to the shops at Camp Hill is either by car or via a long walk along Danes Camp Way, through the underpass and then through Camp Hill, although as the crow flies the shops are actually very close. It appears that the footpath is being dug up to accommodate the extra lane on Danes Camp way, but there is no mention on the plans of new footpaths or crossings, or what will happen to the underpass. Without this the estate would be even more cut off than it is currently. As there will be traffic lights added it would make sense if a pedestrian crossing was incorporated into this.
