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.
According to LTA, the affected roads will close from 12.01am on 28 Sep to facilitate the setting up of the race infrastructure.
The affected roads are in the Marina Centre and Padang area and include Nicoll Highway, Beach Road, and Collyer Quay.
They will progressively reopen after the race and will be fully accessible by 5.30am on 4 Oct.
Given the road closures, visitors are advised to take public transport to the race venue.
