Due to the National Day Parade 2007, 9 SBS Transit bus services will be temporarily diverted on Saturday, 28 July and Thursday, 9 August 2007.
On these two dates, Republic Boulevard and Raffles Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic.
Republic Boulevard and Raffles Avenue will remain passable to bus services between 8.00am and noon. However, Services 36, 56, 97, 111, 133, 162X, 195 and 502 will not call at the three bus stops located before Temasek Avenue, opposite The Oriental Singapore and The Esplanade. This is because the buses are only allowed to travel on the right carriageway of Raffles Avenue. On 9 August which is a public holiday, Service 70X will also be affected.
From noon to 11.00pm, Raffles Avenue will be completely closed to vehicular traffic. As a result, all these 8 services and Services 70X will be diverted.
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 7.25pm on Saturdays and 6.40am on Public Holidays, while Service 162X from 2.25pm and 6.54am. Hence, the diversion for these two services will be applicable from the times when they turn into Marina Centre.)
