Beginning the week of June 3, a detour will begin to divert traffic from Paddy Kay Drive, Tilting Place, Castle Heights, and sections of Clearview Heights. The detour is necessary to divert traffic away from the construction area of the Clearview Heights road upgrade work. 

Traffic will be detoured through Harcourt Drive and Gosse’s Road; exit onto Topsail Road will be from Gosse’s Road, see map below for detour route.  A temporary access has been created to connect Clearview Heights with Harcourt Drive for the duration of the detour. Area residents who will need to use the detour route have received a notice from the Town.

Appropriate signage will be placed along the detour route to direct traffic in the area. The detour route will be monitored by Town officials and Municipal Enforcement and we have asked the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) to increase patrols in the area. During construction, the residents are reminded to proceed with caution and to reduce speeds in construction zones and detour routes.
