Located in north east Scotland, the city of Dundee is over 800 years old and is the fourth largest city in Scotland. The city is undergoing a transformation with a £300 million master plan to regenerate Dundee Waterfront which is expected to last for a 30-year period between 2001 and 2031. The aims of the project will be to reconnect the city centre to the waterfront, to improve facilities for walking, cyclists and buses, to replacing the existing inner ring road with a pair of east/west tree lined boulevards, build a new civic square and a regenerated railway station and arrival space at the western edge. A new Victoria and Albert museum is also being built which is set to be completed by 2015.
