Plans Submitted for Major Rail Hub Which Could Create Up to 8,000 Jobs


SEPTEMBER 2018

A bid to create a major rail hub in Northamptonshire which could bring 8,000 jobs to the region has been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate.

Ashfield Land and Gazeley are behind the scheme for the rail freight interchange where the West Coast Main Line and Northampton Loop Line intersect, adjacent to the A43 and within two miles of Junction 15A of the M1.

The companies are seeking a development consent order for Rail Central which would include a traditional container handling 'inter modal' terminal connecting into the Northampton Loop Line and an 'express terminal' connecting directly into the West Coast Main Line. 

The plan also features up to 7.4 million sq ft of rail-connected and rail-served logistics and commercial buildings.
