RAIL ‘THREAT TO CANAL’

Canal Boat - - News -

Cam­paign­ers fight­ing the Rail Central plan for a ma­jor rail­way and road freight in­ter­change near Blisworth fear that it will se­ri­ously im­pact the Grand Union Canal. The Stop Rail Central cam­paign says that the scheme will not only mean the loss of farmland and dam­age his­toric vil­lages, but that where it oc­cu­pies canal­side land nodth of Blisworth it will ‘se­ri­ously dam­age the her­itage and day to day us­age of that stretch of the canal’. Stop Rail Central is gath­er­ing sig­na­tures for a pe­ti­tion against the scheme. See also let­ters, page 17
