SPOT THE DIFFERENCE: Dundee’s transformation documented by Google

Alexander Street is captured with and without the multis

Dundee’s incredible transformation has been ongoing for a decade — and Google Street View has been there to capture it all.

It has been 10 years since the search engine launched its digital map.

And now, the Tele has delved back into the archives to highlight some of the biggest changes in the city.

The Waterfront is still in the midst of a major overhaul with the impending arrival of the V&A, but the old Olympia was still standing back in 2008 next to the RRS Discovery.

Driving into Dundee from the Tay Road Bridge provided a radically different view that same year, with the Google cameras showing the former Bridge Roundabout before its removal.

Images also show Alexander Street before and after the multis were demolished in 2011.

The multis in Derby Street suffered a similar fate in 2013 and the most recent street view still show the green space left behind.

Riverside Drive has also seen a marked difference. The land adjacent to the road was vacant in 2008 but the most recent pictures capture the multi-million pound flats and the Seabraes Bridge, constructed in 2015.
