Business ready infrastructure in Ebbw Vale
The Zone’s accessibility means you’ll have strong road, rail and air links to customers and suppliers in the UK, mainland Europe and beyond.
The central location of Blaenau Gwent offers excellent logistics to markets in the north, south, east and west of the country.
Just 30 minutes by road from Cardiff and a couple of hours from London, you’re within easy reach not just of those cities’ airports but also those at Bristol and Birmingham.
It’s under an hour’s drive to the M5 and M6, linking to the West Midlands and other UK manufacturing hubs in under two hours. Direct access into and out of the Zone is getting better and faster with around £800m invested in developing the nearby A465 Heads of the Valleys road and an £11m extension of the railway line.
The electrification of the Great Western mainline from Cardiff to London will reduce rail journeys between the city centres to just 100 minutes by 2019.
