The infrastructure for Dundee's waterfront redevelopment project will be completed ahead of schedule, the Scottish government has announced.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the £100m infrastructure plan - including a new road layout and access to the Tay Road Bridge - was also on budget.

It is part of the £1bn development of an 8km stretch of waterfront in Dundee.

The project includes the V&A design museum, the city's new railway station, a new Hilton hotel and blocks of flats.

More than £600m of funding has been secured for the entire project, but the developers are still seeking more private investors.

The Scottish government said the original infrastructure plan was due to be completed by the end of summer 2016 but was now on track to be finished at the end of February.

Ms Sturgeon said: "The progress we have seen on this infrastructure work is a testament to good project management and support from the wider local community and businesses.

"Scotland has a proud tradition and enviable global reputation for engineering excellence, built on the skills and innovation of our people, making it an attractive location for business investment."
