For the next two Saturdays, 14 and 21 July 2007, 9 SBS Transit bus services will be temporary diverted due to the National Day Parade 2007 rehearsals.
To facilitate the rehearsals, Republic Boulevard and Raffles Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic.
Republic Boulevard will be closed from 8.00am to 11.00pm
Raffles Avenue will remain passable to bus services between 8.00am and 7.00pm. However, Services 36, 56, 97, 111, 133, 162X, 195 and 502 will not call at the two bus stops located before Temasek Avenue and opposite The Oriental Singapore. This is because the buses are only allowed to travel on the right carriageway of Raffles Avenue.
These services, however, will continue on their regular routes except Services 56 and 195 which will be diverted to loop at Temasek Avenue.
From 7.00pm to 11.00pm, Raffles Avenue will be completely closed to vehicular traffic. As a result, all these 8 services and Services 70X and 162X will be diverted where they will not be able to call at the three bus stops located along Raffles Avenue.
Commuters travelling to and from the said area can board and alight at the bus stops in front of Suntec Convention Centre or Pan Pacific Hotel.
Commuters are likely to experience service disruption in the area and we seek their understanding.
Please refer to the attached poster for details. SBS Transit service updates are also available on our website at www.sbstransit.com.sg
(Note: On Saturdays, Service 70X will turn into Marina Centre from 7.28pm, while Service 162X from 2.29pm. Hence, the diversion for these two services will be applicable from the times when they turn into Marina Centre.)
