FILMING for the Shetland crime drama series is due to take place in the area of south/upper Hillhead, Lerwick on Thursday (22 April) from approximately lunchtime through to 7pm.
The production team has requested, and been granted, a temporary closure of the road there between the junction with Scalloway Road and Prince Alfred Street to allow filming.
Shetland location manager Davie Gardner said: “Can all drivers please use an alternative route to that section of the road.
“If, however, urgent resident access is required – especially in terms of disabled access or parking – please let me know asap re this as arrangements can be made to accommodate this where necessary.
“Parking in the area will also be restricted that day, with several of our technical support vehicles parked in the area too, especially in the section of St Olaf Street in the immediate vicinity, so please be aware of this and increased traffic in this area too of course.”
A ‘chase’ sequence will also be filmed in the vicinity of Law Lane, Hangcliff Lane and Bank Lane at some point during these times.
This could mean pedestrians in these areas being ‘held’ for short periods of time while actual filming is taking place. This will only extend to a few minutes on each occasion.
“Once again apologies in advance for any inconvenience that any of this might cause,” Gardner said.
