Newfoundland and Labrador Route 238


Newfoundland and Labrador Route 238

Route 238, though short, has two slightly disjointed components : the Elliston Road and the Cape Bonavista Road (at least according to mapquest).

The Elliston Road

The portion that outsiders would call the Elliston Road itself has three distinct parts called by Elliston dwellers the Bonavista Road, the Catalina Road and the Maberly Road.

The portion between Elliston and Bonavista (ending near Spillar's Cove) is called by those of Elliston 'The Bonavista Road.' It forms a T-junction with the two other parts of Route 238 mentioned here. Coming from Bonavista, if you turn right at the stop-sign (just past the Anglican graveyard on the right), you leave Elliston again quite quickly on the Catalina Road which, although it does not go directly to Catalina, does bring you to Route 230 on the outskirts of Bonavista towards Catalina. If, having come from Bonavista, you turned left instead of right, you would find yourself on Route 238-II which passes through Elliston Centre, Sandy Cove and the Neck and finishes in a circular road in Maberly i.e. 238-II is a deadend.

The Cape Bonavista Road

According to the mapquest site, Route 238 continues on past Route 235 (though the two parts of Route 238 are not continuous at Route 235; one has to drive along Route 235 for about a hundred metres or so). This section cuts across northeastern Bonavista, the only more easterly route being a rough road which passes by the geological formation called The Dungeon and which has a small, day-use, provincial park.[1]

Route 238 then meets the main coastal road through the town and continues out to the Cape Bonavista Lighthouse.
