NDP 2019 Last Bus & Train Timings On 8 & 10 Aug
Our nation’s 54th birthday is in less than 48 hours, and a huge bash will be held at the Padang to commemorate it.

Vehicles who anyhow park will be towed away
Strict “parking restrictions” will be adhered to, when it comes to peripheral roads near the area, say the police.
If any car is found to have parked “indiscriminately” or cause “obstruction” to any traffic, they will be towed away.
To ensure that the parade goes off without a hitch, kite-flying, unmanned aircraft (e.g. drones) and hoisting of balloons in the area are not advised during the entire duration of the event.
NDP revellers can’t wait for an extra long weekend
So as we make our way to celebrate Singapore’s birthday, do be aware of where to get off if you’re going via bus or car.
