THE PRODUCTION team filming the final instalments to the popular Shetland crime drama is alerting islanders to possible traffic disruptions near the Staney Hill Hall on Friday morning between 9am and 1pm.
To allow filming to go ahead in a safe manner temporary stop and go traffic control measures have been granted.
Shetland local manager Davie Gardner said: “This measure will only be implemented intermittingly and only while actual filming takes place – extending to no more than a few minutes on each occasion.”
He added that the ITV Shetland technical support vehicles will be parked in the residential areas that will be coned off later on Thursday, most likely the Nordgaet and Stocketgaet areas, where they will remain for the duration of filming.
“If those who find themselves within this zone could temporarily make alternative parking arrangements that would be hugely appreciated,” Gardner said.
“Thank you once again for your co-operation with this and sincere apologies for any disturbance or inconvenience caused.”
Anyone with further questions or comment is requested to contact Davie Gardner on 07867 654 509.
