Road closures coming up in central Kirkwall and Stromness for flagstone repairs

Date: 14 September 2022

Orkney Islands Council is advising of upcoming road closures in central Kirkwall and Stromness starting next week for flagstone repairs.

OIC’s Roads team is planning on carrying out flag stone repairs in Bridge Street and Albert Street in Kirkwall, between Tuesday (20 September) and Friday (23 September).

The work will be carried out under road closure conditions. However, wherever possible and safe to do so, works will be barricaded off while repairs cure, to enable roads to reopen as soon as possible.

All going to plan, crews will then move through to Stromness on Monday 26 September, also for flag stone repairs, with work there expected to continue until Friday 7 October. The works in Stromness will take place in two phases:

  • Phase 1 will be on Victoria Street between No 20 Victoria Street and the junction of Church Road and Victoria Street. This phase is planned to run from Monday 26 September to Friday 30 September - again all work will be carried out under road closure conditions.
  • Phase 2 of the Stromness works will see Alfred Street, South End and Ness Road closed to all vehicular traffic, between Monday 3 October and Friday 7 October.

Again, where possible the aim will be to barricade off repairs so as to reopen affected sections of road as soon as possible, where it is safe to do so.

The Council would like to thank the public in advance for their patience while these works are carried out.
