Dundee consults on Magdalen Yard bridge designs

Indicative view of a new Magdalen Yard bridge

Users of a footbridge to cross railway lines in Dundee’s West End are being asked for their views on its future.

A consultation launched by Dundee City Council is seeking views on the replacement of the Magdalen Green Footbridge.

Steven Rome, depute convener of the city development committee, said: “Because the current structure is nearing the end of its useful life we are applying for funding for a replacement, but we wanted to make sure that people who use it and who live close by have a say in the process.

“As the first stage we are trying to find out about how people use Magdalen Green and the current footbridge, and what they think about the proposed future bridge.

“By the end of the summer when we have the results we will use them to help inform the funding application and future design phases for the bridge and surrounding environment.”

As well as an online engagement survey, an in-person drop-in engagement event is being planned for August.
