The pilot Pedestrian Night on Orchard Road has been successful in garnering public interest and enhancing Orchard Road’s street vibrancy.

At each Pedestrian Night, the stretch between Scotts/Paterson junction to Bideford junction will be closed to vehicular traffic from 6 pm - 11pm, allowing visitors to experience an array of bustling activities across the entire space on the iconic shopping boulevard.
