Improved pedestrian access to the waterfront was a key outcome of the masterplan consultations. With development proceeding at both Riverside and Seabraes the new bridge offers a direct alternative to journey between those areas, thus avoiding the 1.5km detour to avoid the railway.
The bridge also aligns with the recently constructed steps at Seabraes allowing for direct connection through the Seabraes development sites to the University Of Dundee campus. Footpath and Cycleway facilities also permit connections to Dundee City Centre and the popular west end residential district.
