Perth Road road is in line for a transformation to make it a more welcoming place to visit.
West End Community Council has received funding through Sustran’s Places for Everyone scheme to enhance part of the busy street.
The revamp would take in the section of the route between Miller’s Wynd and Blackness Library to make it more accessible and will include a focus on active travel such as cycling.
A series of public consultations will now take place to gather ideas popular among locals.
These will take place at the Gate International Church from May 22 to 25. There will also be a stall at WestFest on June 2.
Planners reached out to school children from St Josephs, Blackness Primary and Harris Academy on Thursday, to generate ideas from the younger generation.
Some of the children wrote a “postcard to the future”, outlining their vision for the area’s development over the coming years.
A group of the pupils will be at the Gate church events to present their ideas to visitors.
The second phase will then see plans drawn up, based in part on suggestions gathered.
A website has already been launched, including an interactive map and the chance to leave suggestions.
Some submissions already made include more space to store bicycles, adding zebra crossings and painting double yellow lines to prevent parking on Perth Road.
The Places for Everyone scheme encourages increased accessibility, particularly for people who walk, cycle or are in wheelchairs.
Russell Pepper, West End community councillor and project sponsor, said: “Perth Road is great part of Dundee, but it could be so much better.
“It should be a place for everyone in the community to enjoy and take pride in, so we’re delighted to have secured funding to hold a series of events to gather opinion and priorities from the local community on how they would like to see the area improved.
“If we’re successful in securing funds for the second phase of the project, this information will have significant input, so it’s important that as many people take part as possible.”
Dave Keane, Sustrans infrastructure manager, said: “We are pleased to be able to support the community council to help make Perth Road a space where people can come to meet, spend time or access other parts of the city.
“We look forward to seeing the ideas that the local community come up with and working with the community council and city council to help take these ideas forward.”
