Paid for contentGrobsness to feature in latest Shetland crime drama

Scenes were filmed at the Holmsgarth ferry terminal Tuesday.

FILMING the eighth instalment of the popular Shetland crime drama series will move to Grobsness on Thursday (13 April).

Production company ITV Shetland has been granted an official closure of the unclassified Grobsness road to the property (from the B9071) between 9am and 10pm, to “safely and effectively manage traffic and carry out the filming process”.

Location manager Davie Gardner said: “It is currently envisaged that this will NOT extend to a full closure of the road at any point – with residential access being regularly maintained – although it may nevertheless be subject to a ‘stop/go’ traffic management system at various times throughout the day.”

Any hold ups of traffic during that time will extend to little more than a few minutes at a time, Gardner added, “primarily to allow us to move production related traffic in a safe manner on this very narrow stretch of road.”

He added: “Also note that you may encounter vehicles parked at various safe points along the road, especially towards the end of the road and the adjacent turning point.

“We ask that this is kept clear for safe turning and traffic management at all times

“Rest assured we will endeavour to keep any negative impact, disruption and inconvenience to an absolute minimum at all times, with the maintenance of access to local residential properties our priority – including for purposes of animal/livestock welfare.”

As part of this same filming process ITV Shetland’s larger ‘Unit’ of production related vehicles will be located on the industrial site at Wethersta, near Brae, from late pm on Wednesday (tonight 12 April) until late pm on Thursday (tomorrow 13 April).

“Again, we aim to keep any disruption, related noise and any inconvenience to an absolute minimum,” garner said.

“However, please be aware of increased traffic movements in the area relating to this and also between Wethersta and our location in Grobsness – especially on the Brae to Voe road and between Voe and Grobsness itself.

“Thanks once again for your co-operation and patience in this respect.”
