This year, motorists will be able to enter the Marina Centre area during the road closure period from Sept 21 to 27, without the need for vehicle passes.
Several roads will be closed from Sept 21 to 27 for the F1 Singapore Grand Prix this year but motorists can still enter the area without the need for passes.
A single lane along Nicoll Highway and Raffles Boulevard will allow motorists to get to the carparks of the various buildings in the Marina Centre area during road closures taking place from Sept 21 to 23, and Sept 26, from 10am to 5pm and 10pm to 6am.
This single lane will also open from midnight to 1pm on race weekend, Sept 24 to 25.
ERP gantries will also be turned off on specific dates and times to avoid interfering with sensitive video transmission (see tables next page).
Besides the single-lane, motorists can also enter the area via Temasek Boulevard from the ECP slip road to Rochor Road throughout the day.
However, should traffic volumes be unusually high, access via these two routes may be regulated based on prevailing traffic conditions.
Taxis will be allowed into the Marina Centre area to pick up and drop off passengers at taxi stands in several areas.
However, during the morning peak hours on weekdays, only taxis ferrying passengers with valid hotel guest passes or on call-booking assignments will be allowed entry into the Marina Centre area.
For visitors to the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort, they are reminded to alight at the Marina Bay MRT station or the Raffles Place MRT station instead of the Promenade MRT station, as they will not be able to access the establishment through the Bayfront Bridge.
Motorists are advised not to stop their vehicles indiscriminately so as not to obstruct the traffic flow.
Traffic wardens will be deployed on site to direct traffic and assist the public. Road information and directional signs will be put up in the vicinity to direct motorists.
