Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 31 December 2018
From Susan Bland on behalf of Thomas Bland

Representation

I oppose the development of Rail Central on the following grounds
- inappropriate location in the middle of open countryside, an only a few miles away from another interchange which is under capacity.
- traffic increase on already congested narrow country roads, and also at M1 junctions which are heavily congested and unable to cope with any further increase in traffic movement.
- loss of open spaces for children to play, for walkers and for maintaining the rural character of the area.
- loss of Public footpaths which we use regularly
- loss of wildlife which is irreversible
- pollution - air, light and noise.
