Singapore Grand Prix Road Closures Between 28 Sep To 4 Oct

After 2 years of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix will be returning this year from 30 Sep to 2 Oct.

Besides the concerts that are always a huge draw to the event, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said there will also be road closures at the Marina and Padang area before and after the event.

During peak hours, however, some roads will open temporarily to ease traffic congestion.
