More than $5 million in provincial government funding is being allocated through the 2012-14 multi-year capital works program for municipal infrastructure upgrades in the Town of Paradise.
The total investment, including a contribution by the Town of Paradise, is about $7.6 million.
Municipal Affairs minister Kevin O’Brien outlined details of the funding today at the Paradise Town Hall.
The funding will support upgrades to Karwood Drive, replacement of a regional water line and upgrading and widening of Topsail Road.
“This investment will allow for upgrades of two major roads in the town and replacement of a waterline,” said O’Brien. “The Town of Paradise is experiencing significant growth in recent years and our government is pleased to continue to provide the necessary financial support to help the town respond to the increasing demands through enhanced municipal infrastructure.”
Paradise Mayor Ralph Wiseman said the town is pleased to partner with the provincial government to provide much needed improvements in infrastructure for the residents of Paradise and surrounding communities.
