SINGAPORE — The Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates at six gantries on the Central Expressway (CTE) will be increased by $1 as from Monday (12 October) following a review by the Land Transport Authority (LTA).

LTA said based on its monitoring of traffic conditions in September, traffic speeds have remained optimal on all arterial roads and most expressways, except for some time periods on the CTE.

“As more people travel to and from their workplaces, traffic volume has continued to build up during weekday peak hours. This has led to localised congestion at specific locations along the CTE during peak periods.”

The rate increase will apply to a set of four gantries at southbound CTE after Braddell Road & PIE slip road into southbound CTE between 8.30am and 9am, and between 9am and 9.30am, where the rate will increase from $0 to $1, and a set of two gantries at northbound CTE after PIE between 6pm and 6.30pm where the rate will increase from $2 to $3.

There will continue to be no ERP charges on other expressways and arterial roads and LTA said it will continue to monitor traffic conditions and assess if ERP rates need to be further adjusted.
