Eight months ago, we made an unprecedented decision to close a number of roads in the heart of CBD to vehicles on the last Sunday of each month and transform the precinct into a huge car-free activity space.
They enjoyed the car-free road space and participated in the wide range of activities organised in the adjacent public spaces.
Many also organised their own walks or cycling rides, bringing together individuals with like-minded interests.
We’ve received lots of positive feedback. Many asked us to continue the event, and to expand the car-free route.
So I am happy to announce that Car-Free Sunday SG will be back this Sunday, 30 October!
This new run of Car-Free Sunday SG will be even bigger and better!
The route will extend beyond the Civic District into the Telok Ayer conservation area, providing a longer stretch of full road closures.
Combined with longer road closure hours, from 8am to 11am, this means that there will be more options for people to jog, walk or cycle, and explore our city.
We have more community groups contributing their ideas and activities to make the event more fun-filled and meaningful.
More cycling groups are also organising guided cycling trips from the heartlands to the Civic District.
For example, a “bike train”, a special creation by a Bishan resident – Mr Lee Tang Teng, to ferry his friends around their neighbourhood, will be making its debut this weekend and will offer free rides around the Padang.
Car-Free Sunday SG is a step towards our broader vision of a car-lite and people-friendly society.
So do join us and experience the event with your family, friends and fellow Singaporeans – your Sunday mornings will never be the same again!
