TRAFFIC restrictions will be in place in parts of Sandwick on Friday to allow filming for the Shetland series.
The scenes were previously planned for 2 September, but they had to be postponed.
The location is the Sandsayre Pier and the surrounding roads.
From 8am onwards several driving scenes are planned for roads in the immediate area, although exact locations have yet to be confirmed.
However, all restrictions will be limited to a temporary stop/go traffic management system, with all ‘holds’ limited to no more than a few minutes.
Residential and commercial access will be maintained at all times but will also be subject to the temporary restrictions, production company ITV Shetland said.
From 3pm through to 6pm scenes will be filmed on and around the Sandsayre Pier, which is where the Mousa boat leaves from.
Parking will be restricted in that area during that time.
“Apologies for any inconvenience or disturbance in general this will cause, but your cooperation with this will be very much appreciated,” Shetland location manager Davie Gardner said.
Anyone with questions or issues can contact Gardner on 07867 654 509 or assistant location manager Andy Ross on 07963 713 446. Andy will also be on location on the day itself should direct contact prove necessary.
