Emergency Watermain Repairs (Janal's Rd & Paradise Rd) April 12, 2017

An emergency water shut-off is in place affecting Janal's Road and a section of Paradise Road (civic numbers 118, 129, and 131). The shut-off is required to make repairs to the watermain in the area. Any affected residents can contact the Town at 782-1400 to request bottles of water as necessary. The Town apologizes for the inconvenience caused.

Phase IV Topsail Road Widening (Updated January 11, 2017)

January 11, 2017: The Town of Paradise is advising residents and drivers to use caution on Topsail Road in the area of the Christopher Street bridge. Construction for the Topsail Road Phase IV Widening project within the roadway concluded for the season in December, but work adjacent to the bridge will continue throughout the winter. As such, concrete barriers are in place on the south side of Topsail Road and on the bridge. This has reduced the available width on the bridge for both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Pedestrians are advised to seek an alternative route if possible. The Town of Paradise apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. It is expected that the Topsail Road Phase IV Widening will be substantially completed by the end of 2017.


September 2016: The project consists of widening Topsail Road from Christopher Street to St. Thomas Line, installing storm sewers, curb, gutter and sidewalk, and replacing the bridge at Christopher Street.

The work will continue through to December, weather dependent. During the work, there may be times when detours are required. There may also be times when the Octagon Pond Trail is closed due to equipment working in the immediate area of the brook. Updates and information about detours will be posted in advance by the Town via its website and social media. 

With work occurring in the vicinity of the new Octagon Pond Elementary School, the Town has also worked with the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District (NLESD) to develop a busing option for students living near the construction zone on Topsail Road. This busing option will help to minimize traffic congestion.
