SINGAPORE — Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates at certain Central Expressway (CTE) gantries will be raised to $1 during peak periods from 27 July, said the Land Transport Authority (LTA) on Tuesday (21 July).

The new rates apply to motorists passing the southbound CTE gantry before Braddell Road between 8am and 9am, as well as those passing the two northbound CTE gantries located after the Pan Island Expressway between 6pm and 7pm.

The changes come after the LTA’s second review of ERP rates since the circuit breaker period ended on 1 June.

“As more people travel to and from their workplaces, traffic volume has begun to build up again during weekday peak hours. This has resulted in localised congestion at specific locations along the CTE during the morning and evening peak periods,” said the LTA in a news release.

ERP rates at all other gantries will remain at $0 until the next review, the outcome of which will be announced in the fourth week of August. Any further changes to the rates would then take effect from 31 August.

LTA said it will review ERP rates every five weeks, although the frequency of reviews may be adjusted depending on traffic speeds and congestion levels.

All ERP gantries were switched off from 6 April, a day before the circuit breaker period kicked in.
