The replacement of the bridge was part of the wider aim to improve access to Dundee Port primarily for HGV traffic.
Stannergate Bridge's capacity was restricted to 33T. This restriction has been removed and this along with the junction improvements at the Greendykes Road/Broughty Ferry Road junction allows for easier access to the trunk road network. This project was funded by TACTRAN.
The road between the Stannergate bridge and the Port has also been improved with support from Scottish Enterprise Tayside.
