Walking and cycling infrastructure16/04/18
A SIX-FIGURE investment in the city’s walking and cycling infrastructure is on the path to completion.
More than £356,000 has been identified for new surfacing and a boundary fence on a stretch of shared use path through Dundee Dock.
A recent agreement between the city council and Forth Ports opens up access through the harbour area via the path.
Now councillors are to be asked to approve a bid for the work from Jones Bros. of Ruthin, North Wales.
Forming part of the National and North Sea cycle routes and also the local Green Circular the path is popular with walkers and cyclists.
Lynne Short convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said: “This work will see some upgrading to the surface and boundaries to make using the route smoother and easier for cyclists and pedestrians.
“It is a popular stretch and I am sure these enhancements will boost the number of people wanting to use it.”
Funding for the works is coming from various sources including TACTRAN and the European Regional Development Fund.
If the city development committee agrees the tender at its meeting on Monday (April 23) work could start in May and be finished by the height of summer.
