Barricades have been put in place at Broughty Ferry rail station as a safety measure, Network Rail has said.
The rail company said it had removed a section of the station from public use because of a difference in the height of the platform.
An extensive replacement project was recently carried out at the station to accommodate modern trains which are expected to start servicing the Ferry in the near future.
However, because the station building is listed, the platform could not be altered.
A Network Rail spokesman said: “Taking the platform area in front of the station building out of use was part of the plan for the work at Broughty Ferry.
“As it is a listed building we are not able to raise the height of the platform without changing the look of the building so that section has been left unaltered.”
