News From Orkney Islands Council

Orkney Islands Council is advising that Palace Road and Tankerness Lane in Kirkwall will be open to traffic again from Monday 2nd December.

Although Palace Road will be open, some temporary traffic control measures will be in place for a short time to allow pavement work on the Bishop’s Palace side of the road to be completed safely.

In addition, Watergate will be closed to traffic from Monday 2nd December as work begins to replace the existing pavement and street lights. Access will be maintained for the Sheriff Court and homes in the area.
