THE A970 Lochside Road in Lerwick will be closed for essential road repairs and resurfacing from Monday (1 August), for up to ten working days.
The closure will cover a stretch of road of around 90 metres, from south of the junction with Hayfield Lane, to north of the junction with the Clickimin.
The road closure will be in place while works are underway between 9.30am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.
The work will be done in two parts to maintain access to the Clickimin Centre, via either North or South Lochside, and with diversions signposted.
On the day that the road junction to the Clickimin Centre is resurfaced, access will be closed, with parking available nearby at Anderson High School.
The alternative route for traffic is via King Harald Street, using the A969 South Road or A969 North Road as necessary.
Bus stops on North and South Lochside will not be served during the road closure period.
The town service bus will be diverted along Gilbertson Road.
