2008 Singapore F1 Grand Prix Road Closure and Public Transportation Guide

The first ever Formula 1 night race will be held in Singapore from 26 to 28 September 2008. To facilitate the setting up and removing of the temporary race infrastructure, a series of gradual road closures in the Marina Centre area will take place from 20 September to 2 October 2008. From LTA:
19. During the race weekend (25 Sept to 28 Sept), race goers are strongly encouraged to make use of public transport to get to the Circuit Park.

20. Free shuttle bus services from Outram Park, Clarke Quay, Kallang and Lavender MRT stations are available to ferry race ticket holders to the vicinity of the Circuit Park. At the end of the race, these shuttle bus services will also be available to ferry race goers back to the respective MRT stations. Please refer to Annex E for details on how race-goers can go to their respective gates via public transport.

21. Over the race weekend, from 26 September to 28 September, all MRT services will run till 1.30am, while the free shuttle bus services for ticket holders will run till 1.00am.

22. Given the expected 100,000 strong crowd over the race weekend, especially on race day, race goers are advised to stagger their dispersal times to avoid being caught in the surge of human traffic at the MRT stations. Dispersal time from the Circuit Park is expected to take up to 1.5 to 2 hours. Race goers may want to patronise the various fringe events after the race instead of rushing off.
