ITV SHETLAND plans to film scenes for the new series of Shetland in the area of the croft at Hamar, South Whiteness on Wednesday (9 June) between 7am and 8pm.
Although the crofthouse where actual filming will take place is located well off the main road, the production team have requested from the SIC – and been granted – a temporary ‘stop/go’ traffic control measure on the main South Whiteness road in the immediate area of operations.
This will allow them to park technical support vehicles along the main road and to allow an orderly flow of traffic and to ensure both the safety of drivers/crew and also the general public.
“Please note this and the fact that traffic will only be held for very short periods of time on each occasion. Thanks for your co-operation with this and sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused by this necessary measure,” Shetland location manager Davie Gardner said.
Anyone with additional questions or issues relating to this measure should contact:
Chris Groves – Unit Manager – 07946 826 721
Or Davie Gardner – Location Manager Shetland – 07867 654 509
