MMDA said a modified stop-and-go traffic scheme along the routes of the convoy will be enforced. In the scheme, vehicles of the delegates of ASEAN and their convoy will be prioritized.

A full stop of traffic will be observed five minutes before a convoy passes through, but the volume of traffic will determine the duration of the stop-and-go scheme on each intersection.
