As a resident of Blisworth, I wish to object to the Rail Central proposal for its Road/Rail interchange.
The first of my reasons for my objection relates to the nature of Blisworth, it is a small rural village surrounded by open fields, the proposed development will effectively join Blisworth to Milton Malsor with the concrete of this development. Secondly, the village of Blisworth already suffers from traffic trying to avoid the jams at junction 15 of the M1 by shortcutting through the village to Junction 15A, this shortcut passes the Infant school. At peak times for the school, the traffic can backup two-thirds of the way to Milton Malsor. The other main issue is that with the Interchange working 24/7 the light pollution for a village normally bathed in darkness will be excessive.
