CITY SQUARE IMPROVEMENTS
Construction is currently underway to the City Square at the heart of Dundee's city centre which will see over £2m worth of improvements. Once complete the Square will have new soft landscaping, new lighting and drainage as well as other improvements. The project, due to be complete in mid June 2013, is designed and lead by Dundee City Council's City
Development Department with the works being undertaken by Tayside Contracts and Kilmac Construction.
Will Dawson, convener of Dundee City Council's City Dev Committee said,
"With the massive amount of work going on around the city, particularly at the new Malmaison Hotel and elsewhere on the Waterfront, it is important that other prominent parts of the city centre are equally attractive for visitors and local people.
"City Square has always been a gathering place and with these improvements it will be able to provide upgraded facilities for market stalls which can be used at events such as the successful monthly Farmers' Market.
"I am sure that it will attract even more people who want to sit, chat and enjoy the atmosphere.
"As well as the environmental improvements the important nature of these works will also safeguard the square for future generations through improved drainage and work on waterproofing the roof of the underground garage."
