SINGAPORE - The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) will be installing barricades and hoardings around several statues and landmarks along the Singapore River, to protect them from construction works. 

According to a joint statement from the URA and Singapore Tourism Board (STB), enhancement works are being carried out in the Civic district to create an integrated arts, culture and lifestyle precinct.

Barricades and hoardings will be set up at the following areas:

1. Sir Stamford Raffles statue (at Raffles landing site outside Asian Civilisation Museum) (Date: March 2 till July 31, 2015)

2. People of the River (POTR) series - 'A Great Emporium' and 'From Chettiars to Financiers' (Date: March 6 till July 31, 2015)

3. Cavenagh Bridge (the bridge will remain accessible for pedestrian crossings) (Date: April 1 till July 31, 2015)
