Road blocks, including screenings of people and vehicles, will be enforced at Trump-Kim Summit venues, as well as the areas and roads surrounding them.

“The venues involved in the Summit, and the areas around them, have correspondingly been designated as Enhanced Security Special Event Areas from 10 June to 14 June 2018,” said the Singapore Police in a press release. “To ensure public safety and security, the Police will put in place strict security measures within these areas.”

The Enhanced Security Special Event Areas include areas around the Shangri-La and Capella hotels.

Besides the Enhanced Security Special Event Areas, several “Special Zones” have also been highlighted. In these “Special Zones”, members of the public should expect road blocks and security checks on persons and vehicles. Traffic is also expected to be heavy and delayed at these areas.
