Dundee City Council has given assurances McGonagall’s Walk on Riverside Drive will be repaired after being damaged during recent flood prevention works.
The issue was raised after Fraser Macpherson, a councillor for the area, contacted city development director Mike Galloway to address the problem.
Mr Galloway said: “My officers investigated the damage to McGonagall’s Walk art installation and found there are seven cracked slabs and damage to one of the words.
“The damage to the slabs occurred during the construction of the new seawall. This has been raised with the contractors, who have advised they will replace them.
“The damage to the individual letter was not caused by the contractor and this will be replaced by the council.”
