News: Float@Marina Bay set to commemorate national service


The temporary floating platform at Marina Bay will be developed into a permanent space to commemorate national service (NS) as well as be the primary venue for future National Day Parades.

The platform will be expanded with more seats added, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said yesterday.

Its current name Float@Marina Bay will be changed to NS Square, with a gallery that will showcase the evolution of NS.
