Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 29 December 2018
From Roger Allen


I wish to registeran objection to the Rail Central warehouse proposal.

We are regular users of the footpath between Roade and Milton Malsor which crosses the main railway line. The Rai Central diversion of this path would see it moved from its current position along countryside tracks to a position alongside the railway lines. As well as having two bridges over the Northampton loop line the only views from the diverted path would be of the railway metal fencing. There would also be a lot of noise from the trains and the loading and unloading of containers.

In short there would be no point in using this path in future as there would be no enjoyment in it and the extra crossings of the railway lines would make it much more difficult for people of our age to negotiate.
