Oppose planned strategic rail freight interchange in rural Northamptonshire

Reason for signing

  • This plan is entirely money-motivated. Having a central meeting point for Lorries and trains in rural Northamptonshire makes 0 sense. Why do we need all freight from the ports to come to Northamptonshire, only for them to be shipped back out again? Have smaller distribution centres at the ports! It increases the carbon footprint of goods and jeopardises the respiratory health of local residents while clogging up our already saturated road systems. This isn't NIMBYism, this is common sense.
