Singapore – Higher charges at two Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) gantries during peak hours will be implemented starting May 6.

On April 29 (Monday), the Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced the increase in rates after its quarterly review of traffic conditions on roads and expressways.

Motorists will be charged S$2, a S$1 increase, at the southbound Central Expressway (CTE) gantry before Braddell Road from 8:30 am to 9 am.

Those passing through the gantry located at the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) after Defu Flyover will have to pay S$4, a S$1 increase from the previous S$3, from 8 am to 9 am.

According to the LTA, the next review of ERP rates will be on May in preparation for the school holidays in June.

This after the announcement last February 18 that three ERP gantries, Upper Bukit Timah Road after Hume Avenue, Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) before the exit to Maxwell Road and on the slip road to Marina Coastal Drive heading west, will be free during peak hours.

Netizens already expressed the likelihood of higher ERP charges once another review is made.-/TISG
