ERP Rates Up By S$1 At Several Expressways From 3 Apr

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is revising the Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates at several expressways from Monday (3 Apr).

Making the announcement on Tuesday (28 Mar), LTA said traffic has built up at various stretches of expressways based on studies of traffic conditions in February.

The same will apply from 9.30am to 10am for the KPE (ECP) gantry, as well as 8am to 8.30am for the westbound PIE before the Eunos gantry.

Rates at other time slots remain unchanged.

The number of locations and timeslots charged is still lower than the number charged pre-Covid-19, according to LTA.

“LTA will continue to monitor traffic speeds and congestion levels closely and assess if ERP rates need to be further adjusted,” it added.
