New Roundabout Finished
The roundabout at the intersection of Topsail Road-McNamara Drive-Clearview Heights is completed!

The new roundabout will improve traffic flow, especially during peak morning and evening traffic. Signage and line painting are in place, and the roundabout is fully operational as a two lane roundabout. 

We thank residents for their continued patience and understanding during this construction project. 

Information on how to navigate the roundabout can be found on the Town of Paradise website at  paradise.ca/en/live/roundabouts
Lift Station Repairs
Repairs have started at the St. Thomas Line / Topsail Road Lift Station and are expected to be completed in approximately four weeks. At times, there may be traffic interruptions as equipment and trucks work in the area. 

As of September 3, external pumper trucks were no longer required on the site full-time as external equipment keeping the lift station operational while repairs are ongoing. Pumper trucks may periodically be required depending on the nature of the work being completed. Steps are being taken to minimize the noise from the external equipment.

The total costs will not be known until all the repairs are completed but at this point it is estimated that the cost will be approximately $1.5 million. The Town remains in discussion with the Provincial Government to determine if the Town may be eligible for any funding assistance to help off-set the cost of the repairs.

The Town will continue to provide updates on this project as the work progresses.
