Surface dressing – Wednesday 27 June
Surface dressing work will continue tomorrow (Wednesday 27 June) on the main road in Evie (the A966 from the 30mph sign at the cemetery to the Old Evie School) and the road will be closed in both directions.
The suggested diversion is via Finstown, the Harray junction, and Birsay crossroads. Where possible, Hillside Road (the road over the hill from Evie to Dounby) will remain open to through traffic, though drivers should expect some delays.
These works will affect public bus Service 6: Kirkwall - Tingwall - Evie - Birsay. The 06:38, 06:55, 11:15, 15:30 and 17:10 services from Kirkwall are unaffected.
Outwith these times, the bus from Kirkwall will go only as far as Tingwall and will not serve Evie and Birsay.
