UPDATE: Kim Jong Un has arrived in Singapore.

Heads up people — there’re going roadblocks set between the east to the south of the island. To be exact, road closures will go into effect along the vicinity of Changi Airport towards Tanglin Road.

Why? Because North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s arriving at Changi Airport in less than an hour, and it should be nothing but clear roads for Dear Leader on his way to The St. Regis, the upscale Orchard Road hotel (with butler service) he’s expected to bunk in.

“Motorists can expect delays in these areas,” noted the Singapore Police Force in a statement. “Motorists are encouraged to plan their journeys early, and to follow the directional signs and instructions from police officers.”

The Straits Times reported that a Russian-made cargo plane believed to have carried food, weapons, and vehicular supplies for Kim arrived earlier today at Changi Airport just after 12:30pm. Refrigerator trucks were on standby at the airport since 10am, and it is believed that they’ve transported the goods to St. Regis.

Over the past couple of days, Singapore has gone into security overdrive at three locations involved in the summit — The St. Regis, Shangri-La Hotel, where US President Donald Trump is expected to stay, and Capella Hotel, the location of the historic summit itself.
