Orchard Road closed on Saturday night for One Team Singapore Rally

SINGAPORE - Orchard Road will be closed to traffic on Saturday evening (March 7) for the One Team Singapore Rally.

This is the sixth event in the Pedestrian Night On Orchard Road initiative, which has been held on the first Saturday of every month since last October.

Orchard Road (between Scotts Road and Bideford Road), and the carriageway of Mount Elizabeth in the direction of Orchard Road (between Nutmeg Road and Orchard Road) will be closed from 6pm to 11pm.

During the road closures, only police and emergency vehicles will have access to these roads.

The police warned that vehicles found parked indiscriminately and causing obstruction will be towed away.

The Rally is the start of a campaign calling for Singaporeans to support athletes taking part in the SEA games, to be held in Singapore this year.
