Work begins on the Northern Gateway access road opening up the site for main construction work
Work has begun on the first phase of the huge Northern Gateway site which straddles the former RAF base at Sealand.
Ellesmere Port based civil engineers D Morgan have started infrastructure works on the land which will see them build an access road opening up the site and unlocking its potential.
D Morgan came out top in a four way bid for the £3.1m Welsh Government contract to build the 0.8km single carriageway road which includes junctions, roundabouts, foot-ways and cycleways.
The new road, north of the River Dee, west of the A550 and A494 off Farm Road in Garden City will eventually open up land to what will be the largest private sector-led development in North Wales.
Flood defence work costing the Welsh Government £2.2m has recently been completed along river bank running along the southern boundary of the site.
The Northern Gateway project will eventually include a residential development with up to 750 houses, offices, shops, an advanced manufacturing centre and open public spaces creating up to 5000 jobs.
Deeside.com asked D.Morgan on Tuesday 24th May for a comment on the start of the work on the Northern Gateway and despite a generic auto response they have not replied.
Flintshire County Council were also asked about the start of work on the Northern Gateway site they too did not respond.
