Additional bus service to assist part of the West End

A new peak time bus service, jointly funded by the City Council and Angus Council, and to be operated by National Express Dundee, will start next Monday (27th May) providing direct links between Piperdam, Liff, Ninewells Hospital and the City Centre.
The good news for the West End is that parts of the West End including Guthrie Street, Brook Street, Milnbank Road, City Road, Tullideph Road and Ancrum Road will be covered by the new route.    This is particularly welcome for those residents who used to rely on the former Stagecoach 74 service that was withdrawn back in 2009.
The timetable can be downloaded here.

Launch of the History Bones Project

Along with two of my ward colleagues and the Public Health Minister, I had great pleasure this morning in attending the launch of the Brittle Bone Society‘s History Bones Project.

The project, run in partnership with the University of Dundee’s Archive Services, will catalogue the 40+ years history of the society – documents, photographs and historic memorabilia. It is excellent that this precious archive material will be protected and catalogued.


The society has achieved much since it was created back in 1968, and continues to help and support people affected by the bone condition Osteogenesis Imperfecta. It is based in Guthrie Street in the West End Ward and is the only UK national charity with its headquarters in Dundee.
