£356,000 for work on path?

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

MORE than £356,000 is set to be in­vested in new sur­fac­ing and a bound­ary fence on a stretch of path through Dundee Dock, which is us­able by both walk­ers and cy­clists.

A re­cent agree­ment reached be­tween Dundee 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.

Lynne Short, con­vener of the 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.’’

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 next Mon­day, work on the pro­posed route could start in May and be fin­ished by sum­mer.
