SINGAPORE: Several roads and lanes will be closed to vehicles this Saturday (Jun 18) to facilitate a National Day Parade (NDP) rehearsal at the Marina Bay floating platform

The police said the closures, for the combined component rehearsal 4, will affect roads and lanes around Raffles Avenue, Republic Avenue, Republic Boulevard and Raffles Boulevard.

Most of the closures begin at 7.30am, with different end times for different roads and lanes.

During the closure, access will only be granted to authorised vehicles as well as police and emergency vehicles.

"Auxiliary police officers and Singapore Armed Forces marshals will be deployed at the affected junctions to assist and direct motorists," said the police in a news release on Wednesday.

Motorists should plan their route early and avoid these roads, said the police, adding that members of the public travelling to these affected areas are "strongly encouraged to use public transport".

Motorists proceeding to Suntec City and Marina Square from Raffles Avenue, Raffles Boulevard, and Bayfront Avenue should also use alternate routes via Nicoll Highway or Ophir Road leading to Temasek Boulevard.

Parking restrictions along the affected roads will be strictly enforced and vehicles found parking illegally or causing obstruction will be towed, said the police.
