Living within 200 m of the proposals. I would like to formally object to the highways proposal to change the junction on the A 5076 Dane Camp and the A5076 Upton Valley way the Urban strategic ring road for Northampton. This ring road is already at maximum capacity during the mornings and evenings weekday with normal commuter traffic and out of Northampton and traffic from the M1 and adjoining industrial, resulting in traffic coming to a standstill for long periods. This current level of traffic is exasperated by any problems on the M1 traffic is diverted via this ring road. Thus there is an increasing the level of pollution and noise for the residents that abut this ring road. At weekend during the winter sports season this ring road if blocked with traffic to both the football and rugby stadiums.
