Work will begin on the eastern outskirts of Kirkwall as follows:
Work is expected to begin between 08:30 and 9:00 each morning, although morning traffic will be allowed through unhindered where possible.
Short delays of up to 20 minutes may be encountered throughout the day. On rare occasions this may extend to 45 minutes on narrower roads, but the aim is to keep this to a minimum.
