yes.. also like this year route very much...I really don't believe all the affected facilities due to road closures did not have some plans on road diversion, I think they r trying to push the blame...I did rmbr this year the route came out very early, at least a few mths in advance??
the worst scenario would be they switch back to 2016 and before route...fail safe hahaha
why not expressway , a la kl n hk marathon where the highway was used in more than 50% of the route??? guess they scared of all motorists complaints pay so much on road tax n erp n their car n u dare close the expressway??? hahahaha me included...hahahaha
in going to heartlands such road congestion esp relating to public surfaced...just wonder if ambulance will to go en route to hospital, n the Marshall allow to go thru will it lead to runners complaints about their pb ??? will runners understand??? (just wondering - surely there is another routes to raffles hospital amid all the closures, just that taxi n public not aware?? then all the hospitals in orchard road, isn't it worst the closures??? this bring to mind the weekend maintenance works to smrt.currently..all the notice works were at mrt stations, n most of public say not informed??? oh my...true, smrt deserved a lot of bashing for the frequent breakdowns in last few mths...now this maintenance works also kanna all the complaints hahaha...I bet the public know the last Jedi movie is starting this Wed even without any notices hahaha
I guess you mean it will return for a longer stretch. It was never gone for any FM, including this year.
Which is sad coz I really like this year's route. But with all these issues on road closures next year IM will take the easy way out instead of reviewing what can be further improved. And of course we can forget about running in the heartlands. Even having the race in the evening sounds distant now.
This year must be one of the more problematic SCSM. Either that or people has learnt to be more vocal about the wrongs they seen/experienced.
