A55, A494 and A548 Deeside Corridor 25 October 2017

A new route, consisting partly of an entirely new dual two-lane road and partly an upgrade to the existing A548, between the A55 at junction 33 (the A5119 at Northop) and the A494/A550 junction complex at Shotwick, intended to relieve the existing A494 and A55 between those points. The new dual carriageway will run from the A55 at junction 33 to Connah's Quay Power Station. From that point, the A548 will be upgraded to form a free-flowing expressway with grade-separated junctions, crossing the Flintshire Bridge, with a new direct connection to the A494 at Shotwick leading to the M56.
