I have previously mentioned that I am taking part in the informal committee to progress the excellent Discovery Walk proposal.
The Discovery Walk will comprise of plaques set into the paved area of the Green Space at the heart of the city's huge new waterfront development - to celebrate the contributions of Dundee people who have contributed to science and society in a highly visible and permanent way. Bronze plaques in the pavement will tell the fascinating stories behind these individuals and their discoveries and inventions.
The committee met yesterday to review progress and finalise the plaques. The plaques look superb and the walk is on course to be officially opened in April 2016.
I have no doubt that Discovery Walk will enhance the new Waterfront and be another asset for our city.
