Emergency services, including both Broughty Ferry lifeboats, were called out on Thursday night over concern for a man on Tay Road Bridge.
A spokesman for Police Scotland said: “We received a call at 11.17pm from a member of the public who was worried for the safety of a male on the Tay Road Bridge.
“Emergency services were in attendance and police succeeded in eventually talking the man to safety.
“The man was reported to be safe and well by 11.31pm.”
He said that coastguards were on standby.
A spokesman for HM Coastguard said: “Both Broughty Ferry lifeboats were launched but the incident was dealt with before they arrived at the scene and they were not required to be used.”
