Expansion Of Smoking Ban Along Tanglin Road And Dhoby Ghaut

From July 2018, as the Orchard Road belt will be transformed into a smoke-free zone. For the first three months after the smoking ban is enforced, those caught smoking in the smoke-free zone will receive verbal warnings, and those who ignore the warnings may be issued a fine. From October next year, enforcement action will be taken against offenders who smoke in public areas within the smoke-free zone, other than DSAs.

Smoking at Orchard Road will only be allowed at designated smoking areas (DSAs), and there are currently five of them in the area:

  • Behind Somerset MRT Station
