NEW ROUTE THROUGH MBS TO GET TO NATIONAL DAY PARADE AsiaOne
A new alternative route to access the National Day Parade (NDP) on August 9 can be accessed via the Helix Bridge next to MBS. Previously, the 26,000 plus crowd caused bottlenecks at the five entrances along Raffles Avenue and Marine Square shopping centre where every spectator goes through security checks before entering the Marina Bay floating platform.
NDP operations director Tay Boon Khai told The Straits Times that he expects the process for spectators to get to their seats from the entrances, which usually takes between 30 to 45 minutes, to be smoother this time round.
