Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

I will have lived in Blisworth for 50 years in 2019. In that time, housing development in neighbouring towns and local commercialisation of farmland has seen traffic with its' noise, pollution and threat of accidents increase significantly. There are certain times each day when it is best for residents not to attempt to cross the through roads in the village. Regarding the commercialisation of farmland, a survey within the last ten years revealed that not one person employed in those developments actually lived in this village. This leads me to believe that the workforce for the proposed Rail Central would recruit from nearby towns, increasing traffic. Despite the Blisworth bypass reducing the noise, pollution and damage to roads and properties, the rise in decibels of traffic on not only the bypass, the A508 and the M1, already high will further increase.
