PUBLIC access is being maintained as work progresses on upgrading the coastal pathway, a fact that has pleased Ferry councillor Laurie Bidwell.

He told the Guide & Gazette: “Work is progressing on the last section of the upgrading of the coastal pathway running between the Stannergate, Dundee, to Douglas Terrace, Broughty Ferry. This major contract has been jointly funded by Dundee City Council and SUSTRANS. This section of the pathway runs between Grassy Beach and Douglas Terrace.”

He went on: “I think that many of the regular walkers and cyclists who make use of the pathway will be relieved to know that public access will be maintained while the extensive work is undertaken.

“This should ensure that dog walkers, leisure and commuting cyclists and other users can continue to use the pathway day by day.”

The councillor concluded: “In the long run, I think constituents will accept that our temporary inconvenience will be worthwhile when they can enjoy using the complete upgraded pathway in the spring.”
