Torbay businesses are well connected by air, road, rail and fibre helping to compete nationally and internationally.
Torbay benefits from one of the best road networks in the South West thanks to the A38 and the M5 connection at Exeter.
The South Devon Highway provides a fast route in and out of the bay. Business is better when you can meet clients and customers personally. To take just one example, travel from Torbay to central London by train in just 2 hours 30 minutes. Rail links are fast and reliable providing 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.
When you’re based in Torbay, your goods and people can be on the motorway network within 20 minutes. That opens up all the airports of the South West to businesses in the bay.
Torbay’s proximity to three international airports – Exeter, Newquay and Bristol – mean that businesses have a direct link to 112 countries and major international hubs.
We’re brilliantly connected in another way too. Digital connections in Torbay consistently score above the national average in terms of broadband speed and fibre coverage.
Many people living and working across Torbay are set to benefit from the BT Openreach national upgrade plan, with the majority of premises in each area gaining access to the latest ultrafast, ultra-reliable, full fibre broadband as part of a £112m investment programme.
