PART of the main street in Scalloway will be closed for much of the next fortnight while resurfacing work is carried out.
Shetland Islands Council’s roads team has advised the public that the west end of the A970 at Main Street, between Hillside Road and Chapel Lane, will be closed from 9am-4pm Monday to Friday. Diversions are in place via Houl Road.
In addition, public bus service 4 between Scalloway and Lerwick will be unable to serve Port Arthur at times when Main Street is closed to traffic. At those times it will terminate at Scalloway Hall instead.

Shetland News is asking its many readers to consider start paying for their dose of the latest local news delivered straight to their PC, tablet or mobile phone.
Journalism comes at a price and because that price is not being paid in today’s rapidly changing media world, most publishers - national and local - struggle financially despite very healthy audience figures.
Most online publishers have started charging for access to their websites, others have chosen a different route. Shetland News currently has over 540 supporters who are all making small voluntary financial contributions. All funds go towards covering our cost and improving the service further.

- Bring you the headlines as they happen;
- Stay editorially independent;
