A local night street market looks set to be held under the West Coast Viaduct on Saturday, Jan. 21, from 7pm to 1am.
Organised by The Local People together with the Singapore Land Authority, the event will also mark the start of the short-term leasing of land under the viaduct to be used for events.
The space under the West Coast Viaduct is located diagonally opposite The Cheese Prata Shop at 18 Clementi Road.
This announcement was made by SLA on Monday, Jan. 9.
“We are constantly looking into ways to creatively adapt state land and properties for interim use,” said SLA chief executive Tan Boon Khai, adding that the space has been fitted with “electricity as well as modular structures to facilitate the piloting of new concepts by social groups and entrepreneurs.”
Called the Duct Tape Party, the Jan. 21 market event will feature handmade crafts from home-grown designers, a food truck and live musical performances, as well as movie screenings from the Singapore Heritage Short Film Competition 2016 to be projected on the underside of the viaduct.
Oranisation Food from the Heart will accept donations of dried or canned goods from the public.
