Anne pushes Segro on railfreight

31st October 2016

Anne Main and Oliver Dowden have written to the Radlett railfreight developer, Segro, to question them over workers’ travel and sustainability.

In her latest letter, the St Albans MP, along with Hertsmere MP Oliver Dowden, said that,

‘It was noted that there was a ‘lack of realism’ about Helioslough’s case on the sustainability of the site.  It is clear that there are vitally important questions that need addressing.’

The MPs questioned Segro over their plans to accommodate workers on the proposed railfreight site, as well as travel plans to the rail interchange.  They said,

‘Bearing in mind the immediacy of your intention to purchase the land from the county council, and the fundamental importance of this issue, we should be grateful for the details of what provisions are in place for the site relating to workers’ travel and sustainability.  As I am sure you will agree, these are critically important questions for our constituents, whom the development of this site as a rail freight terminal will deeply affect.’
