London MP visits Dundee

Leading London MP Tom Brake has visited Dundee to learn about the city’s Waterfront project, the Victoria & Albert Museum project and to tour Dundee’s cultural quarter, taking in a visit to the DCA and Dundee Rep theatre.

Accompanied by my colleague John Barnett, the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Dundee West, Tom received a briefing about the exciting plans for the V&A on the city’s Waterfront which is expected to attract many new visitors to Dundee. With the recent announcement of all-party support for the proposed high-speed rail link from London to the north of England and Scotland, they discussed prospects for the service to hopefully be extended in time to Dundee.

John said “The first step is to build the new line to Edinburgh and Glasgow which will greatly improve the rail travelling experience to Scotland from London and continental Europe. Whilst the railway line north of Edinburgh, with two bridges and tunnels, would pose major engineering challenges, improved transport links to Dundee will be a vital factor in securing future visitors to the new V&A and Dundee’s other attractions.”
