Business ready infrastructure in Deeside
The strategic location of Deeside, with its easy access to Ireland, the Midlands and North West has been a major consideration for many of the Zone’s existing resident companies.
Move here and you too will be within easy reach of customers and suppliers across the UK and beyond by road, rail, air and sea.
Deeside lies on the E22 Euro route, just minutes off the UK motorway network– so is well positioned to access both Irish and mainland European markets.
Direct passenger services to London Euston from nearby Chester in just over two hours, local freight opportunities, and planning underway to develop a North Wales Metro connecting Deeside with its workforce
Liverpool’s docks and airport and Manchester Airport can all be reached in 35 minutes, the Port of Mostyn is just 20 minutes away, and it’s just over an hour to the Port of Holyhead. There is also an airport within the Zone at Hawarden, which is accessible to private corporate aircraft.
Within the Zone, cycling and walking to work is actively supported – indeed one section of the traffic-free route forms parts of the internationally acclaimed Wales Costal Path. A Deeside shuttle bus also operates to bring staff to work within the Zone, providing a well used link with local communities and transport interchanges.
Plans are also in place to further upgrade rail facilities at Shotton to provide a fully integrated interchange between train, shuttle and conventional bus services, to improve the accessibility of Deeside to a wider workforce from right across North Wales.
