$1.5 Million in Road Improvements for Bonavista South

Bonavista South is the latest region to reap the benefits of the Williams Government�s record-setting, $73 million Provincial Roads Improvement Program, as the Honourable Dianne Whalen, Minister of Transportation and Works, today announced $1.52 million for road upgrades in the area.

"Never in the province�s history has a government made such a significant investment in our road network," said Minister Whalen. "Improvements to the province�s transportation infrastructure make it easier and safer for motorists to experience the beauty of our province."

Road work planned for Bonavista South is:

  • Place surface course asphalt on previously upgraded section of Route 230; south of Morley's Siding, approximately 4.7 km.;
  • Guide rail near Summerville (carryover); and,
  • Upgrade and repave Route 230 near Greening's Restaurant.
  • "With winter coming to a close and the busy tourism season just around the corner, I am pleased with the announced road work for Route 230," said Roger Fitzgerald, MHA for Bonavista South. "The Discovery Trail is a busy highway, serving both area residents and visitors. These projects will provide a more comfortable and safe travelling experience for all."

    The Provincial Roads Improvement Program will create an estimated 1,400 person years of employment and is part of the Provincial Government�s infrastructure strategy, valued at more than $2 billion.
