New rail/road Inland Port

A new rail / road interchange is planned for farmland by junction 24 of the M1 near East Midlands Airport which would be served by a new railway and create 6,000 jobs.
Freight brought into the UK via Felixstowe, Hull or the Channel ports would arrive into the proposed distribution centre and the economic heart of the East Midlands region by rail, rather than road.
An existing freight rail line linking Nottingham and Birmingham would be extended to the proposed site.
