NEW MULTI MILLION pound coastal flood protection measures for the waterfront area in Dundee could come a step closer next week if councillors approve a tender for the work.

The city development committee will be asked to award the £6.4m of works between Dundee Airport and Camperdown Dock to Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering Ltd.

Will Dawson committee convener said: “This scheme is one of more than 40 that the Scottish Environment Protection Agency prioritised for Scottish Government funding just a year ago.

“Since then a considerable amount of work has gone into making the plans a reality so that we can reduce the risk of flooding to residents, community and business properties and the new open recreational space at Slessor Gardens officially opened last summer.

“If this tender is approved we would hope to see work start on site before the end of the month with a target of completing it next spring.”

The scheme will include set-back walls and flood defences to provide a one in 200 year (plus climate change) standard of protection.

The city development committee meets on Monday (January 23).
