More than £356,000 is set to be invested in new surfacing and a boundary fence on a stretch of path through Dundee Dock, which is usable by both walkers and cyclists.
A recent agreement reached between Dundee City Council and Forth Ports opens up access through the harbour area via the path.
Now, councillors are to be asked to approve a bid for the work from Jones Bros, of Ruthin, North Wales.
Lynne Short, convener of the council’s city development committee, said: “This work will see some upgrading to the surface and boundaries to make using the route smoother and easier for cyclists and pedestrians.’’
Funding for the works is coming from various sources including Tactran and the European Regional Development Fund.
If the city development committee agrees the tender at its meeting next Monday, work on the proposed route could start in May and be finished by summer.
