Broughty Ferry active travel08/01/20
WALKERS and cyclists who use the paths network in Broughty Ferry and Monifieth are being encouraged to share their views on proposals to improve the experience.
Suggested developments are divided into four sections of the route covering West End/West Esplanade, East End/East Esplanade, Monifieth/Balmossie footpath and Douglas Terrace Walkway (Stannergate to Grassy Beach to Douglas Terrace).
Mark Flynn, depute convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said: “It is important that any proposed changes to the active travel network in Broughty Ferry, and further on into Angus, are ones which will be of greatest benefit to the people who use the paths.
“That’s why we are keen for as many people as possible to take part in the consultation and share their views with the team.”
In the West End/West Esplanade area suggestions include a widened path between road and dunes, a new seating area and improved access to the beach at Windmill car park, footway buildouts to make road crossing easier, a proposed electric bike docking station and lighting improvements.
t the East End/East Esplanade options cover a new surfaced path near the playing field, more direct link to The Esplanade from Bridge Street, Balmossie footbridge improvements, a wider bridge at Dighty Burn and lighting improvements.
Suggestions for Monifieth/Balmossie include a new surfaced path at West End Park west of Tayview Caravan Park, improvements to Albert Street bridge and Union Street underpass, better surfacing on North Balmossie Street/Seven Arches route and improved lighting, which is also an option at Douglas Terrace.
