THE PRODUCTION team behind the filming of crime drama Shetland has been granted permission to operate a temporary ‘stop/go’ traffic management system outside Lerwick Sheriff Court and its adjacent streets between 7am and 1pm on Monday 12 April.
This is a temporary measure, with traffic unlikely to be held for more than a few minutes on each occasion to allow actual filming to safely take place.
Parking will also be restricted in that area from Sunday evening until completion of filming on Monday lunchtime – including the parking bays immediately outside the Sheriff Court and King Erik House.
Permission has also been granted to park technical support vehicles in St Olaf Street on Monday in areas similar to previous years.
If driving in this area at that time please be aware of unusual activity and exercise due caution.
Anyone with issues relating to this should call unit manager Chris Groves 07946 826 721 or Shetland locations manager Davie Gardner on 07867 654 509.
The production team said: “Thanks so much again for your co-operation and patience in this respect and apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused.”
