Work to redevelop aspects of Dunedin's student area has progressed with the awarding of a contract for preliminary design work and an indicative business case.

The Dunedin City Council has engaged engineering firm Aecom to investigate improvements in priority areas Union St East, Clyde St, Harbour Tce and Albany St.

The council's "Tertiary Precinct Project", planned together with the University of Otago and Otago Polytechnic, was recently awarded NZ Transport Agency innovating streets for people funding.

In Union St East, that funding would allow for a redevelopment to reprioritise how the street was used so there was more space for the large numbers of pedestrians who used it daily to move between lectures and meetings.
