Getting connected in Torbay
Torbay businesses are well connected by air, road, rail, and fibre-optics – helping them compete nationally and internationally.
Connected by road, rail and air
Torbay benefits from one of the best road networks in the south west, thanks to the A38 and the M5 connection at Exeter. The £110million South Devon Highway provides a new route in and out of the region, making access to markets and customers quicker than before.
Rail links are fast, reliable and provide a direct route to regional centres such as Exeter and Plymouth and the rest of the UK, including central London, Bristol, the Midlands and the North. London can be reached by rail in just two and a half hours. With brand new investment in high speed trains, journey times in 2018/19 will become even quicker.
Torbay’s proximity to three international airports – Exeter, Newquay and Bristol – means that businesses have a direct link to 112 countries, making the region a truly international player.
While physical connectivity is crucial, Torbay’s digital links with the rest of the world are becoming increasingly important. Thanks to the government’s fibre-optic rollout programme, Torbay’s major centres of Torquay, Brixham and Paignton now all enjoy super-fast broadband connectivity with average download speeds of 27MB/s and 84% availability.
