Paid for contentCrime drama scenes to be shot in Burra on Tuesday

FURTHER scenes for the upcoming series of TV detective show Shetland will be filmed at a property in Burra on Tuesday.

It will take place at a property on Meadows Road, East Burra (Burra Bears) from 7am to 8pm.

Locations manager Davie Gardner said: “As such we have requested, and been granted, an official closure of Meadows Road as shown in the diagram provided during the above hours in order to safely and effectively manage traffic and carry out our filming process.

“However, it is currently envisaged that this will not extend to a full closure of the road at any point, with residential access being maintained throughout, although the road may, nevertheless, be subject to occasional ‘stop/go’ controls for safe traffic management at various times throughout the day.

“Here again though any traffic ‘holds’ applied during that time will extend to little more than a few minutes on each occasion.

“Also note that you may also encounter our technical support vehicles parked at various safe points within the area – all of which have been agreed with the property owners concerned. We also request that the turning point at the south end of Meadows Road be kept clear for this purpose.

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

A larger unit of production related vehicles will be located at the Bridge-End outdoor centre from late pm tonight (Monday) until mid-evening on Tuesday.

Gardner added: “Here again we have requested official parking at the centre for this purpose, while aiming to keep any disruption, related noise and any inconvenience to an absolute minimum.

“However, please be aware of increased traffic movements in the area relating to this and on the roads through Trondra and Burra throughout the day too.
