SIR, - On March 13 I attended the presentation by the proposers of Road/Rail Freight Interchange development at Park Street. I found it to be a very poor presentation with only relatively small-scale, out-of-date maps provided. There was no model available - no doubt because this would have highlighted the enormity of the proposal.
The staff were unable to give satisfactory answers to the large number of matters of grave concern, not only to local residents but to the future of the city of St Albans. They did, however, make two very significant admissions.
The first was that loaded lorries would enter the depot for transfer to other vehicles - in other words, road to road and not the avowed intent of using the railways.
The second admission was that there was nothing to stop ordinary southbound traffic using the proposed Park Street bypass road to avoid the A405 in getting to the M1. They would cut through Bricket Wood which already suffers from a large volume of rat-run traffic.

I was surprised that these admissions were made but I heard them with my own ears.
