Police advised that sections of roads in downtown George Town will be closed on Saturday evening during a march.

A March for Family procession will take place on Saturday, starting at 6pm. It will begin on the lawn of the old Glass House and travel west along Elgin Avenue, onto Edward Street and conclude on Fort Street in front of Heroes Square. The procession is expected to conclude at 7pm, police said.

“Sections of these roads will be closed as the procession passes and re-opened immediately afterwards. Motorists are asked to exercise caution in these areas on Saturday evening,” police said in a statement.

At the end of the procession, Fort Street will remain closed between Harbour Drive and Edward Street, until about 9pm. The section of Fort Street east of the clock tower will remain open.
