FILMING the latest instalment of the popular Shetland crime series moves to the Scottish Sea Farm base at Slocka, Ronas Voe, on Wednesday (1 September).
Production company ITV Shetland said that a traffic control system would be in place on the minor road alongside Ronas Voe for around 12 hours from 11am to 11pm.
Location manager Davie Gardner said: ”Traffic control measures and traffic lights will be used for this purpose.
“Please note that a cherry picker may be in the road on occasions too – primarily during the later evening hours.
“These restrictions will, however, only be applied for a few minutes at a time while actual filming takes place.”
ITV Shetland’s vehicular unit base will be located on the Wethersta industrial estate in Brae, while the fleet of technical support vehicles will be located at the Blueshell Mussels farm at Ronas Voe.
“Please be aware of this and increased traffic in both areas and on the main A970 road near to the location in general as well. Apologies in advance for any inconvenience or disruption caused by this,” Gardner added.
For any queries please contact Davie Gardner directly on 07867 654 509 or, alternatively, assistant local manger Andy Ross on 07963 713 446
