CapitaLand has also extended the grace period for parking at its malls.

In a bid to provide delivery drivers and riders more time to park their vehicles and make deliveries, the authorities raised the grace period for parking at car parks managed by the URA and HDB from 10 minutes to 20 minutes.

The extended period has kicked off on Sunday (23 May).

“The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been tough on everyone. With the current Heightened Alert measures, more businesses have been hit and it is important that we continue supporting each other to emerge stronger,” wrote Minister for National Development Desmond Lee on Facebook on Friday (21 May)

He noted that more people have turned to delivery jobs to supplement their income.

“With more people staying home to help fight the spread of the virus, the demand for deliveries has increased,” he said.

He shared that CapitaLand has also extended the grace period for parking at its malls.

“I urge other malls and private sector partners do the same, to show their support for our delivery workers.”

He added that Enterprise Singapore will also be extending the waiver of fess for private bus season parking holders at all government-owned car parks.
