A series of road closures affecting the Marina Centre area will take place from 21 September 2011 to 27 September 2011 to facilitate the setting up and dismantling of the race infrastructure.
This year, motorists will be able to access the Marina Centre area during the road closure period, without the need for vehicle passes.

This single lane will also open from midnight to 1pm on race weekend, 24 and 25 September.
Besides the single-lane, motorists can also enter the area via Temasek Boulevard from the ECP slip road to Rochor Road throughout the day. However, should traffic volumes be unusually high, access via these two routes may be regulated based on prevailing traffic conditions.

While driving along these roads, motorists are strongly advised not to stop their vehicles indiscriminately so as not to obstruct the traffic flow. Traffic wardens will be deployed on site to direct traffic and assist the public. Road information and directional signs will be put up in the vicinity to direct motorists
Visitors to the Marina Centre area are strongly encouraged to take the MRT, which will continue to be in operation during the road closures.
