Wellington Junction remains closed
The Wellington Street junction on Junction Road and New Scapa Road in Kirkwall will be closed overnight again tonight, Wednesday, September 12.
Heavy rain at times today has delayed the roadworks Orkney Islands Council is carrying out. The aim is to carry on with the work into the evening.
The exit from Main Street on to Junction Road will be open as normal, with a short diversion via Forelands Road (round behind the new hospital) for those who usually use the Wellington Street junction.
The council apologies for any inconvenience and is hoping to complete the roadworks at the junction as quickly as possible.
The roadworks affect bus services X1 from St Margaret’s Hope, and Services 2, 3 and 4.
