Good news for both car owners and public transport commuters. This year, there will less road closures in the vicinity of Suntec City/Marina Bay during the much anticipated Formula 1 night race later this month, though it is expected that bus services into Suntec City would most likely be diverted away from the area as per last year.
While the diversion and closure plans have yet to be released, bus operator SBS Transit has already announced the temporary suspension of its real-time bus arrival information facility during the F1 period.
The press release as follows:
Due to the F1 race road closures, 27 basic bus services – 10, 10e, 14, 14e, 16, 36, 56, 57, 70, 70M, 97, 97e, 100, 107, 107M, 111, 128, 130, 131, 133, 162, 162M, 195, 196, 196e, 502, 518 – as well as Nite Owl and Premium Services – will be affected. iris NextBus will not be available for these affected services from 23 to 28 September 2009.
