Calls have increased for progress on plans for a park and ride facility at the Tay Road Bridge.
Little has happened since proposals for more than 350 car parking spaces on the Fife side of the bridge and better access to public transport were approved a decade ago.
Those in favour of the idea say it has the potential to provide a regional transport hub serving the needs of Dundee and north east Fife, while also cutting carbon emissions.
Fife Liberal Democrat councillors Jonny Tepp and Tim Brett have been championing the project and have asked for an update from council officers.
In Dundee, SNP councillors Lynne Short and Mark Flynn have agreed it is now time to look at it again.
Mr Brett said: “This facility has planning permission and could provide for a parking area of between 350 and 450 spaces where vehicles could be left if people were visiting Dundee.
“I have asked the convener of Fife’s economy, tourism, strategic planning and transportation committee if he would bring proposals to a future meeting of his committee setting out the current position regarding the proposed park and ride facility.”
Mr Tepp added: “Given the continuing and heightened concerns about carbon emissions and their contribution to climate change, and the likelihood of Dundee City low emissions zones (LEZ) in future, we should make the park and ride a high priority.”
Mr Flynn said he had raised the topic with Robin Presswood, Dundee City Council’s executive director of development, and added: “My understanding is that Tactran (the regional transport partnership for the area) see the park and ride as a key part of the regional transport strategy.”
Ms Short said circumstances had changed since the project stalled.
“As a city centre councillor, the chairwoman of the bridge board and the depute convener of community safety and public health, I am very much still a champion of the park and choose over the water,” she said.
The park and ride project has the support of Transport Scotland and Fife Council, as well as Tactran and the South East Scotland Transport Partnership (Sestran).
Fife Labour councillor Altany Craik, convener of the economy, tourism, strategic planning and transportation committee, said the South Tay Park and Ride project group was meeting this week.
“We will work closely with local members to make sure everyone is aware of progress and can contribute to finding a workable solution,” he said.
“We will also be working with Dundee City Council and others across the Tay City Region group to explore the options that are available.
“We’ll be bringing a progress report to committee in the near future.”
