ABSTRACT
The author discusses the need for strategic rail freight interchanges (SRFIs) to reduce the number of cargo transported by land, and the five-year legal battle of Helioslough to gain permission for conversion of the Radlett airfield in England into an SRFI. He explores the appeals of Helioslough, the reasons of the judiciary for their refusals and the proposed site in Coinbrook. He focuses on an argument to build SRFIs in both Radlett and Coinbrook to resolve the issue.
