    Torbay road study area

    The Torbay Road North Commercial Area is a busy retail and business hub. Torbay Road itself acts as a gateway into St. John's and many people live in the adjacent residential communities.

    As development has proceeded there have been increasing traffic demands on the roads in this area. The City has launched this project to study transportation issues.

    Council voted to accept the Torbay Road North Commercial Area Follow-up Transportation Impact Study during the April 10, 2017 regular meeting. The study can be found here. Findings of the study will be incorporated into the City’s planning for development and... Continue reading

    At the January 23, 2017 Council meeting, a decision was made to delay the project by one year; it is now scheduled to begin in 2018.

    In December 2016 the City announced there are opportunities to rehabilitate the majority of the water and sewer infrastructure on Water Street using trenchless technologies. Since then, the City met with utility and downtown stakeholders to discuss the scope of the work required and the schedule for the project. Both stakeholder groups indicated they would like the project start moved to 2018.

    At the January 23, 2017 Council meeting, a decision was made to delay the project by one year; it is now scheduled to begin in 2018.

    In December 2016 the City announced there are opportunities to rehabilitate the majority of the water and sewer infrastructure on Water Street using trenchless technologies. Since then, the City met with utility and downtown stakeholders to discuss the scope of the work required and the schedule for the project. Both stakeholder groups indicated they would like the project start moved to 2018.  

    This postponement allows more time for utility stakeholders to determine if their scope of work changes based on the new trenchless technology approach. It also allows for downtown businesses to develop their own contingency plans, and for the City and business associations to develop marketing plans to draw people to the downtown before and during construction. 

    While much of the work can be completed using trenchless technology, traditional open excavation will also be required. Public engagement and communication will continue throughout the duration of planning and implementation of the project.

    In advance of the project, the City is asking residents, visitors and businesses to weigh in, and share their opinions and ideas about how Water Street could be improved as this work is completed.
