Responding to the High Court’s rejection of the latest appeal against the rail freight terminal, Oliver Dowden said:
“This looks like very disappointing news.
“I remain completely opposed to this development. The last thing Radlett and the surrounding area needs is an entirely inappropriate rail freight terminal that threatens to clog up our roads with lorries, jam the Thameslink line with freight trains and spoil our surrounding countryside.
“I believe our local area deserves better than this.
“I will vigorously pursue all possible alternatives to try and get the best deal for local residents.”
