Government Invests Nearly $2.7 Million in Trinity North Roads

Communities in the Trinity North region are the latest beneficiaries of the province’s $60 million Provincial Roads Improvement Program.

The Honourable John Hickey, Minister of Transportation and Works, announced today the Williams government will invest $2.66 million to improve roads in the area.

"We are committed to rural Newfoundland and Labrador as evidenced by the fact that 94 per cent of the Provincial Roads Improvement Program will fund repairs outside the North East Avalon Region,'' said Minister Hickey. "Furthermore, our unprecedented investment in provincial roads stimulates the rural economy as it will create approximately 1,200 person years of employment."

The road improvements planned for the Trinity North area are:

  • Replace George’s Brook Bridge #2 (carry-over from last year);
  • Upgrade and resurface section of Route 205 and Loop Rd. including Spur #9 (short local road), Hillview;
  • Upgrade and repave section of Route 2-1-09-05, Avery’s Road, Deep Bight;
  • Upgrade and pave Beach Head towards Champney’s West;
  • Upgrade and pave section of Champney’s East / English Harbour Road;
  • Resurface section of Route 231-16 and replace Lilly Pond Bridge, Route 231-16-1;
  • Resurface section of Route 204, Queen’s Cove to Long Beach and pave section of Route 204-11-3 in Long Beach;
  • Resurface section of Route 2-1-09-1, Adeytown;
  • Resurface section of Route 232, Harcourt.

The Honourable Ross Wiseman, MHA for Trinity North, said: “The announced road work is great news for my district. The projects will no doubt enhance driving conditions in the area and will ultimately provide the traveling public with a safer, more pleasant driving experience.”
