Dundee’s industrial heritage, its history and prominent figures from its past will be celebrated in street and place names for the city’s waterfront.
A number of evocative names have been selected following a consultation on three major open spaces and two footpaths and cycleways within the £1 billion re-development.
The public central space to the rear of the Caird Hall will be known as Slessor Gardens and the space adjacent to the river will be Waterfront Place, while the public space at the Railway Station will become Discovery Plaza.
Black Watch Parade will be the name of the footpath adjacent to the river and the footpath/cycleway next to the road bridge will be Whalers lane.
In addition, Thomson Avenue will mark the contribution to Dundee of James Thomson, who was city architect between 1906 and 1924.
Earl Grey Place (East and West) have been named to keep alive the link between the area and the former dock built in 1834.
Patent Slip Way, which runs beneath the Tay Road Bridge ramps, recognises the track and cradle used to transfer a vessel from the river to the dock for repairs.
The names were chosen from more than 500 suggestions and will be discussed by councillors next week.
