ERP rates to go up by $1 at five locations from 13 Feb
This is due to traffic building up at various stretches of expressways, says LTA
SINGAPORE — Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates will go up by $1 at five locations from next Monday (13 February).
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) said in a media release that, based on its monitoring of traffic conditions last month, traffic has built up at various stretches of expressways. The latest ERP rate adjustments is needed to manage congestion at these locations during the nine specified time periods.
Rates for the other previously-announced time-slots and gantries remain unchanged. LTA said that, even with these adjustments, the number of ERP locations and time-slots charged is still fewer than the number charged pre-COVID.
LTA said it will continue to monitor traffic speeds and congestion levels closely and assess if ERP rates need to be further adjusted.
