SIR, - With the lack of letters in favour of the rail freight terminal at Park Street it is obvious that thousands of residents in St Albans could not care less whether it is built or not.
But our council tax is being spent on protests - �400,000 on the public inquiry last time.
On traffic - build new road from the site straight onto the North Orbital.
Also it would create 1,000 new jobs and workers could spend money in Park Street. As for noise, it would probably be not as much as when Handley Page aircraft were based there.
You may also want to watch:
New residents knew about the possibility of a rail freight terminal being built there or should have been told by estate agents.
A much more worthwhile protest would be against West Herts Hospitals Trust for their diabolical handling of our local hospitals, moving care from St Albans to Hemel Hempstead, then from Hemel Hempstead to Watford. Watford on football days - they're having a laugh.
