MORE scenes for the crime drama Shetland will be shot in Gletness over coming days.
The production team will film at two locations at Gletness on 23, 24, 27 and 28 September.
Tomorrow (23 September) filming will take place between 11am and 11.30pm.
On Friday it run from 10am to 11pm, and on 27 September (Monday) the shoot will take place from 7.30am to 7.30pm.
On Tuesday filming will run from 8am to 8pm.
ITV Shetland has been granted a series of temporary ‘stop/go’ traffic management measures and restrictions during these days.
These are – if used at all – only very occasional and temporary measures, extending to no more than a few minutes each time while actual filming takes place or the roads are safely cleared of ‘action’ vehicles and/or crew members.
“Please be aware of this though and drive with appropriate caution in the area at all times,” location manager Davie Gardner said.
“Additionally, our fleet of technical support vehicles will be active and parked in the surrounding area too. Again, please be aware of these and the fact that, due to this, there will be significantly increased volumes of traffic on these narrow and otherwise quiet roads.
“Also the fact that, on these occasions, we will be working late hours.
“Throughout this extended period in Gletness, our main filming support ‘unit’ vehicles – some of which are large, articulated trucks – will be parked at the old Catfirth Airbase near the Skellister Stores.
“Again, please be aware of these and increased traffic in this area too, especially vehicles emerging from the entrance/exit of the site and the fact that we are working late hours here too.”
Gardner stressed that there will be no filming activity during the weekend of 25 and 26 September.
“Once again, sincere apologies for any inconvenience or disturbance any of this may cause, but thanks as always for your patience, understanding, co-operation and terrific support,” Gardner added.
“Thanks especially to all the folk in Nesting/Gletness itself who have made our cast and crew so welcome there.”
