The company behind the Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal plans to significantly expand the site.
Prologis has applied for permission to build DIRFT III which will expand over the nearby former radio mast site near Hilmorton creating over 9,000 jobs. The rail connected development will include over 70 hectares of warehousing, covering over 163 hectares of land in addition to a 3.5 hectare HGV parking site.
Daventry opened in 1997. The first intermodal freight train into the site, hauled by an RfD class 47, formed the front page of the first edition of RailStaff.
