SINGAPORE – Roads within the Civic District and parts of the Central Business District will be closed to traffic this Sunday (March 27) for the second edition of Car-Free Sunday SG.
Between 7.30am and 10am, members of the public can walk, jog and cycle on the 5km stretch of roads – up from 4.7km in the previous event. Those who wish to cycle can bring their own bicycles or rent from Car-Free Sunday SG’s partner bicycle rental companies beforehand via http://ura.sg/carfreesundaysg and collect them on site.
There will also be an array of activities that will go on until the evening, including news ones such as a guided tour of the Civic District and open mic performances at Esplanade Park. Street performances at Esplanade Park, Connaught Drive and Empress Place will begin from 9am.
Organised by the Urban Redevelopment Authority, Land Transport Authority, National Parks Board, National Arts Council, Health Promotion Board and Sport Singapore, Car-Free Sunday is part of a move to transform Singapore into a car-lite nation. It will take place on every last Sunday of the month in a pilot trial that extends to July.
