SCENES will be filmed for the new series of Shetland at Meal Beach in Burra on Wednesday.
During 6am and 8pm the beach itself – and the public car park adjacent to the main road above this location – will be closed to the general public.
“Our fleet of technical support vehicles will be parked both in the public car park above Meal Beach and in the car park of the old church in Hamnavoe,” Shetland location manager Davie Gardner said.
“Please be aware of this, of vehicles entering and leaving these areas, of crew members possibly in and crossing the road in the immediate area of the location and of significantly increased traffic in general in this area and passing through en route to the location.
“Our main vehicular unit – which includes some larger articulated vehicles – will be located at the harbour in Scalloway, so here again be aware of increased traffic and traffic flow in this area too and drive with appropriate caution.”
Gardner added: “Sincere apologies for any inconvenience or disturbance this may cause during the relatively short period of time we are in the locality but thanks again for your co-operation with this.”
Anyone with any issues or questions should contact:
Chris Groves – Unit Manager – 07946 826 721
Or Davie Gardner – Location Manager Shetland – 07867 654 509
