Flintshire Corridor Update

The Welsh Government have confirmed the proposed route of the Flintshire Corridor from the A55-A5119 Northop junction to the A494 and A550 to the north of Deeside Parkway, utilising the Flintshire Bridge.

The main aim of the proposal is to improve the reliability and journey times and to improve active travel routes.

The preliminary design is still being undertaken and during late 2020, will be undertaking surveys along the proposed route.

It is likely that construction will not commence until 2024 – 2027 and they will look to appoint a Design Partner for the next phase of the scheme in Spring 2021.

The new 13km, two-lane carriageway linking the A55 is further investment by the Welsh Government in the north east of Wales. It will result in a number of Landowners and Occupiers being impacted and are advised to seek professional advice as soon as possible to engage with the Acquiring Authority.

Tom Selby of Rostons states “This is further evidence of investment in North East Wales and will allow further connectivity throughout the north west of the United Kingdom, this is in line with other infrastructure projects such as HS2 and Northern Power Rail. Early engagement is key to mitigating the impact and ensuring representation is made to the Acquiring Authority”.
