AN HISTORIC footbridge over a Dundee burn has reopened after a six-figure replacement and upgrading project.

Fithie Bridge which spans the burn of the same name is a key link on the Dundee Green Circular route.

Mark Flynn convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said: “Tayside Contracts have done a great job replacing the old wooden footbridge with a galvanised steel structure in accordance with Cycling by Design best practice.”

Cllr Kevin Cordell, Dundee City council’s cycling spokesperson added: “As well as the bridge itself cyclists can now enjoy easier access in the area with upgraded footpath crossing points, the installation of dropped kerbs and lighting at the bridge approaches and the bridge itself.”

The project was supported by a £120,000 grant from TACTRAN.
