SINGAPORE: Preparations for the highly anticipated Formula 1 event are in full swing as the LTA announces road closures for F1 preparation around Marina Centre and Padang areas, ensuring a smooth race event.
In their latest announcement, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) confirmed,” There will be road closures around the Marina Centre and Padang areas in preparation for the #Formula1 Singapore Grand Prix. Check out the guides on accessing the area during the road closures from 13 to 19 September 2023.”
They added, “Affected roads will reopen progressively after the race is completed, and all roads will be fully accessible by 19 September 2023 at 5.30am.”
If you plan to attend the races or visit the Marina Centre and Padang areas during this period, they gave other options, saying, “If you’re headed to the races or intend to visit the area during this period, please use public transport. Most #F1 Gates are within walking distance to an MRT station, and operating hours of MRT train services and selected feeder bus services will also be extended during race days.”

You can check which routes are closed according to your travel date and take alternative routes to reach your destination. Also, with most F1 Gates conveniently located near MRT stations, transportation to and from the event has never been easier.
The extended operating hours of MRT trains and select feeder buses during race days guarantee that everyone can enjoy the F1 festivities without transportation concerns.
