The Main Board of Forth Ports has toured the proposed new £10 million quayside development at the Port of Dundee where site survey works are now underway.
The privately funded investment will result in the development of the quayside at the East end of the port, connecting to the existing Prince Charles Wharf.
Upon completion, the quayside will be 200 meters longer than currently and will be one of the strongest quaysides in Scotland, at a strength capability of 80 tonnes per square meter.
This capital development scheme started in February 2016 and the construction process will take 18 months to complete.
The quayside will effectively add both berthing and land capacity at the Port of Dundee and will represent a significant increase in port capacity in the North East region.
