Wolves rail site under the microscope

[ September 7, 2018   //   ]

The Planning Inspectorate is to examine plans by developer Four Ashes to build a rail-linked logistics centre north of Wolverhampton. The West Midlands Interchange would be a 282 hectare site bordering the A5, A449, and M6 at Gailey The promoters say the scheme would take freight off the roads but opponents fear increased pollution and traffic congestion, also pointing out that the development would be on  green belt land.
