Stop the Park Street Rail Freight Terminal


Lib Dems in St Albans are calling upon the government to stop the Park Street Rail Freight Terminal - will you add your voice?

A Government-imposed Strategic Rail Freight Interchange in Park Street would occupy 490 football pitches of green belt. 

As a result, this land:

  • can’t be protected as green belt
  • can’t be used for housing
  • is unlikely to work as a railway interchange – it will just become a massive lorry park.


Will you add your name? 

To the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government and the Secretary of State for Transport

A railfreight interchange would bring untold disruption to our village life and road and rail networks. And it would:

  • require massive engineering in Thameslink tunnels to the south
  • permanently disrupt commuter lines 
  • clog village roads with parked up lorries

Government policy holds this piece of land hostage: STOP the rail-freight and let local people decide how they want to use the land.
