PEOPLE are being advised that further scenes of Shetland will be filmed outside Lerwick Sheriff Court on Thursday.
The shoot, outside the court building, is scheduled for some time between 7.30am and 6.30pm.
“To safely support this we have requested, and been granted, permission to operate a temporary ‘stop/go’ traffic management system at this location and its adjacent streets between the hours of 0730 and 1830 on this day,” Shetland location manager Davie Gardner said.
“This is a temporary measure, with traffic unlikely to be held for more than a few minutes on each occasion to allow actual filming to safely take place.
“Please note however that parking will also be restricted throughout this area – as shown on the diagram above – from the previous evening (Wednesday 6 October) until completion of filming on Thursday evening at 1830, including the public parking bays immediately outside the Sheriff Court and King Erik House.
“We have also been granted permission to park our technical support vehicles in St Olaf Street during this time – as on past occasions here.
“Again, it would be hugely appreciated if the area shown on the attached diagram could be left clear of vehicles in advance of and during these hours. If driving in this area, please be aware of these measures and exercise due care and attention throughout.
“Your co-operation with this is very much appreciated and sincere apologies in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.”
Anyone with questions or issues with the arrangements should contact Gardner on 07867 654 509 or email@example.com.
